THE POPULAR annual competition to find the borough’s best gardeners is open once again.
The Brent in Bloom competition started on Monday, July 1, and is open to everyone – from schools to businesses and community groups to individuals.
Anyone can enter the competition with their garden, window box, hanging baskets or allotment. The deadline is Friday, July 26.
Councillor Roxanne Mashari (Labour), lead member for environment and neighbourhoods, said: “I know this is going to be another exciting Brent in Bloom because we have so many creative and imaginative gardeners and growers who are creating many vivid and exciting garden displays. The beauty of Brent in Bloom is that it is open to all from the smallest plant pot or hanging basket display outside a flat to the grandest front garden.”
There are six categories, front garden, container planting, front wildlife garden, allotment garden, school gardens and a neighbourhood award.
Judges will be looking for design, colour and plant quality when giving out their marks.
