A “fabulous” competition searching for Islington’s best horticultural creations is now open for submissions.
The annual Islington in Bloom awards, organised by the council, celebrates the innovation and creativity of green-fingered neighbours, businesses, community groups and schools in the borough.
There are a diverse range of categories – and Camden Garden Centre are supplying £100 vouchers to winners, as well as £75 and £50 coupons to runners up and those in third place. The centre will also provide all entrants with a free bag of compost.
Applications are accepted until 2 June and judging takes place from mid-June into July.
Islington’s environment chief Cllr Claudia Webbe said: “Islington in Bloom is a fabulous celebration for our community - we have so many green-fingered residents and their beautiful gardening helps make Islington such a welcoming and attractive borough.
