There are just a few days left for green-fingered residents to enter the competition for this year’s Sutton in Bloom. June 24 is the deadline for enthusiasts and organizers hope that there will be more gardening fans taking part in the competition.
Carshalton’s Tweeddale Day youngsters hope to win the prize with their planting skills and made the final call to those interesting in entering. The children planted flowers with some help from the staff at the nursery and started to grow in the nursery garden, their own vegetables.
Other schools along with the nursery will compete to win the category for Best School Garden. Sutton in Bloom has other categories like Best Front Garden, Best Business Frontage, Best Wildlife Garden, Best Community Garden and Best Allotment Garden.
In early July the gardens will be judged and the winners can attend a lunch at the Take Part Take Pride when they receive their award. The categories allow for just about anyone interested to get involved and take part in the competition.
