Aylesbury in Bloom – Garden competition 2019

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Sun, 03/31/2019 - 14:25

What a difference a year makes. Last year we had the beast from the East and this year we had the hottest February since records began in 1910.

Many flowers blossomed early and residents could be heard mowing their lawns in February making an early start to getting their gardens ready for the summer season.

Why not get rewarded for all of your hard work in your garden and enter our annual garden competition? The competition is open to residents, schools, organisations and businesses in the parish of Aylesbury Town.

No garden is too small or large to enter. Over the years the judges have seen some fantastic gardens ranging from small gardens created with just pots, baskets and quirky containers to gardens laid to lawn surrounded by flower beds as well as vegetable gardens, including strawberries growing on a shed roof.

If you garden alone or together with neighbours in a communal area or you are a school/nursery/childminder with a group of children who garden, there is a category for everyone.

We have already received some entries and it promises to be an exciting year again. Everyone will be awarded for the hard work with award ceremonies being held at Lindengate this year.

If you are thinking about entering or haven’t sent through your application form yet, please complete the form and return to the offices at Town Hall or via e-mail.

Categories include Best Front Garden, Best Back Garden, Best Edible Garden, Best Wildlife/Nature Garden, Best Container Garden and Best Young Gardener. Participants can choose to enter multiple categories and with such a wide variety there is something for everyone’s garden.

The competition is sponsored by Michael Anthony Estate Agents and we would like to thank them for all of their support.

Below are the entry form for 2019 together with the judging criteria and terms and conditions.
