Guildford in Bloom Competition blasts off for 2019

Published at 11:46am 29th March 2019.

Guildford in Bloom, the borough's annual horticultural celebration is open for entries.

The free competition is open to everyone, of all ages, living and working in Guildford and closes on 16 June.

This year aims to showcase a lunar theme to mark the 50th Anniversary of the first Moon landing and sees the launch of a new category: ‘Best Site for Nature Conservation’.

Now in its 38th year, the initiative is a chance for community groups, businesses, schools and residents to promote creative plant cultivation to naturally enhance the borough.

The nine categories are:

  • Best Front Garden
  • Best Allotment and Vegetable/Kitchen Gardens
  • Best Garden for Wildlife
  • Best Site for Nature Conservation
  • Best Pub in Bloom
  • Best Container Garden
  • Best Neighbourhood Project
  • Student Garden Showcase
  • Best School in Bloom

Peter O’Connell, the Council's Director of Environment said:

"As always, it doesn’t matter how big or small your garden is or how perfectly maintained or wild it is.

"Guildford in Bloom is focussed on working together and taking part in a fun, healthy activity.

"We’re delighted to launch our new category for 2019, ‘Best site for Nature Conservation’, which is suited to larger areas of private or public land where the aim is to protect and conserve wildlife habitats and species population."

"Entrants can choose to theme their gardens, allotments or garden projects.

"This year we are celebrating the ‘50th Anniversary of the first Moon landing’ and the theme for schools is ‘the colours of summer’. With kind thanks to our premium sponsors Chapter Financial and Allianz."
