Malmesbury in Bloom Gardening Competition 2022

Malmesbury in Bloom Gardening Competition 2022


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.

    A wonderful place to visit with a wealth of attractions right on the doorstep.


    Malmesbury is a beautiful town to visit in its own right and attractions include the jewel in our crown being Malmesbury Abbey, the fabulous Abbey House Gardens, and Malmesbury’s 15th century Market Cross.

    For more than two and a half millennia successive generations have populated this hilltop, which forms the centre of the community we now call Malmesbury.
