Those with horticulture on their mind have been trying their hardest to add a little color to London’s green pockets this week as part of the Green Corners competition, which encourages citizens to add more greenery to the capital city’s streets, in an effort to boost wildlife habitats and brighten up the area.
Awards for the competition are handled by the Conservation Foundation and are supported by the publisher of the Bromley Times.
Every month winners for each category will be chosen and the committee seeks to hear from anyone in Bromley that has seen the difference a garden transformed with flowers or plants can make. The committee is also inviting everyone to participate with or without their own garden.
This month nominations for awards include the Centre Point West End Phoenix Garden.
Follie Gior nominated the area after she visited the park while looking for a shortcut, at which point she found herself stunned by the amount of greenery she found in front of her.
Another of this month’s nominations is the Islington Quaker Gardens, which received its nomination as part of the category of Sacred Spaces for its high use by members of the Society of Friends.
The deadline for June nominations is June 25th. For information on how to enter and the categories visit www.conservationfoundation.co.uk.
