If you’re a fan of gardening and would like to show off your own carefully-tended plot, now’s your chance.
We have launched our Tamworth In Bloom gardens competition for 2014, and are now calling on keen gardeners from across the borough to enter.
Whether you’ve got a huge garden with a rolling lawn and endless flower beds or just a small square of grass, a hanging basket or a window box, it’s your chance to go for gold.
The competition is open to everyone living in the borough. It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced gardener, a complete beginner or somewhere in between – we’d love you to enter this year’s competition.
And as happened last year, competition organisers have designed a postcard which will be put through the door of anyone whose garden they notice is particularly attractive in a bid to encourage them to enter.
The stakes are even higher this year, as Tamworth has been chosen to represent the Heart of England region in the national Britain In Bloom competition.
To enter this year’s garden competition, just take a picture of your garden and either email it to Gardening Competition on firstname.lastname@example.org or drop a copy in to reception at Marmion House.
The closing date for entries is 5pm on Friday August 8th and the winner will receive £100 worth of gardening vouchers.
Lat year’s winners were Philip and Fran Briggs, who took the top prize for their stunning garden at their home in Prospect Street, The Leys. The garden is a 10-year labour of love for the couple, and has been planted to ensure biodiversity. No pesticides are used in the garden, which is a haven for bees and butterflies.
