A competition celebrating the efforts of green-fingered Islingtonians is now open for entries.
The annual Islington in Bloom contest – sponsored by the Gazette – is open to everyone, whether you have a window box, garden, allotment or business.
Neighbourhood tree pits, forgotten corners and community gardens are also eligible for entries, and residents are able to nominate their gardening heroes.
Categories include “best entry in any category from an individual Islington Council housing services resident”, “best entry from an individual Partners property resident”, “most wildlife friendly garden” and “best new entry in any category”.
There are prizes for first, second and third places in all categories and every entrant will receive free compost, a half price plant and a £5 gift voucher from Camden Garden Centre.
The deadline for entries is Friday, May 24 and judging will take place in June. The awards ceremony will take place at the end of September at Islington Assembly Hall, in Upper Street, Islington.
