Cllr Terry Wood, Chairman of the Sutton Coldfield in Bloom Working Group said: “The recent sunshine and showers means all our gardens are blooming. We’d love gardeners across the town to share their beautiful front gardens and hanging baskets or nominate a local pub or shop. Whether you are an experienced gardener or have discovered the joys of gardening more recently, do enter and show us your fantastic floral displays.”
The competition is free to enter and you can apply online on the garden competition page or pick up an entry form at Halls Garden Centre, at the Town Hall or in your local library. The deadline for entries is 30th June 2018. Preliminary judging will take place in July.
All finalists will be invited to a presentation ceremony with the Mayor and sponsors Halls Garden Centre in September.
