Merton in Bloom is part of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom gardening competition, which encourages community groups to brighten up their local area.
Merton in Bloom is a fantastic way of improving the look of our outdoor spaces and getting communities to work together whilst having lots of fun.
This year the contest is a little different, there are fewer categories, but, as well as people being able to enter their own gardens into the contest, anyone can nominate a local garden or floral feature in the borough that has impressed them.
These can include front gardens, allotment plots or gardens at pubs, restaurants or other business premises as well as those at community venues or schools.
Entries can be made in the following categories:
- Best residential front garden.
- Best community or business garden – including pubs, restaurants or schools.
- Best garden features such as window boxes, troughs or planters.
- Best allotment plot.
The closing date for entries has been extended to Friday 14 August 2020.
Judging usually takes place in the month of July and the awards ceremony in the month of October.
