Malmesbury Town Council will again be creating floral displays to enhance our beautiful town, delight our residents and welcome visitors. To reflect this being the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, our planting will have a red, white, blue and silver theme. This is all made possible with the valued support of local businesses and organisations.
We hope that you will be able to join us in making Malmesbury ‘blooming lovely’ again this year, by sharing your green-fingered endeavours and entering one (or more!) of the categories for the Malmesbury in Bloom Garden Competition.
There are categories to suit all, these are;
Category 1 - Window Boxes, Hanging Baskets, Containers
Category 2 - Courtyard Gardens, Patios and Small Garden
Category 3 - Large Garden (more than 10m x 10m)
Category 4 - Street/Road or Area
Category 5 - Commercial Premises, incl Pubs, Hotels, Restaurants
Category 6 - Wild Flower Area
Category 7 - Vegetable Patch
This year Cllr. Vandelli has donated a new cup for Sustainable Gardening, to encourage and recognise those who garden in a sustainable way. This is not a category, but an approach to gardening. It is characterised by gardening that includes; encouraging and planting for wildlife, growing from seed, avoidance of single use plastic pots, use of peat free, compost, use of organic or chemical free methods and products and use of ‘no dig’ or permaculture methods in your gardening.
The closing date is Friday 15th July and judging is planned for Friday 22nd July.
We greatly look forward to seeing your green-fingered creations.
