Flowerbeds of Woking will be under the judges’ scrutiny once again as Woking in Bloom gets ready to celebrate another display of horticultural excellence in the Borough.
Schools, residents and pubs are all invited to spruce up their gardens in the hope of winning one of seven ‘best in category’ titles. These include best front garden, best hanging basket, best pot or container, best floral pub, best-kept shared garden, best school garden and best newcomer.
There is also a prize for the garden that attracts the most creepy-crawlies in the Local Agenda 21 Best Wildlife Garden category. This category is aimed at entrants who take an environmentally friendly approach to the maintenance of their gardens and use green alternatives to herbicides and pesticides. The award will go to the garden that the judges feel best promotes biodiversity and encourages wildlife.
In all categories, however, the judges will be paying close attention to the environmental practices such as peat-free soil, composting, water butts and wormeries.
Entry to the competition is totally free and registration closes on Monday 3 July. To find out more, contact Woking Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Officer firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 01483 733451.
