2019 Entry Details
We are fortunate to have some stunning and attractive front gardens in our borough.
It is our pleasure to recognise and reward them with our Floral Displays Competition
which has been running since 2003.
Each Spring we launch our yearly competition which features 5 different categories,
all aimed to recognise the hard work residents do in providing all of us beautiful
gardens to look at and admire as we travel around the borough.
The categories are:
Best Front Garden
Best Container, which includes categories for young people
Most Unusual Container; if you can grow plants in it you can enter it, the more
unusual the better!
Best Business Floral Display
Most Environmentally Friendly Front Garden
Judging this year will take place from July 15th to the 26th which is slightly later than previous years to allow seasonal bedding to better reach its potential and give even more stunning displays.
All entrants will receive a certificate to note their achievement with the category winner being invited to our annual Awards & Celebration Evening held later in the year.
More details and information is on the entry forms which are available from mid-April at local libraries, Oadby & Wigston Council’s Services Centre, Bell Street, Wigston and in the cafe at Brocks Hill Country Park and Centre, Washbrook Lane, Oadby. Or you can download a copy here.
There are some fantastic front gardens in our borough that help to improve the look and feel of our neighbourhoods. Residents often do this largely for their own pleasure but it is appreciated by anyone passing by and this is a great opportunity to show our appreciation so why not nominate a garden (please ask the owner’s permission first).
For details of previous winners please see the other entries on this menu.
