Harrogate is renowned for its public parks and open spaces but it also deserves a similar reputation for having outstanding private and business gardens.

Harrogate in Bloom

Harrogate in Bloom is running a 2016 Summer Garden Competition which will recognise and celebrate all that hard work.  

There are three categories this year First Impression for business premises;  Our Garden for communal gardens; and My Garden for private homes for the 'Best Front Garden'.

Mary Mann, Harrogate in Bloom's competition administrator is urging anyone who is proud of their garden to enter.  She added:  "Most gardeners garden for their own enjoyment but they actually bring pleasure to many.  We are all guilty of taking a quick peek over the hedge or through the gate as we drive or walk by.  And how many of us have been inspired by someone else's trees or shrubs or their planting or colour schemes?  I know I have.

"Large or small, all your own work or a team effort or even with an employed gardener, we would love to see you enter this year."  

The awards are sponsored by Transdev.

Entry forms, criteria and other details are available at www.harrogateinbloom.org.uk

The closing date for entries is 1 July 2016 and judging will take place between 11 and 22 July.

Winners will be announced at Harrogate in Bloom's Awards Ceremony on the afternoon of Sunday, 25 September 2016 at the Old Swan.
