Three weeks left to enter Redbridge in Bloom

This year’s Redbridge in Bloom competition is in its final month – with new categories inspired by the Olympics.

The competition, which opened in April, is in its 17th year and will include prizes for the best school gardening project, community gardening project and best overall garden inspired by London 2012.

A Redbridge Council spokesman said: “This is a perfect opportunity to bring your community together and garden for the Games, whether it’s to spruce up a whole disused area in your community or to coordinate all of the window boxes and borders on your street.”

The usual categories including best pub and best front garden will be up for grabs, with judges looking for imaginative use of plants and quality displays.

Marks are awarded for the colour, condition and quality of plants as well as the layout and impact.
