Wimbledon is looking bright and beautiful as the borough embraces Merton in Bloom. Everyone can show their appreciation of local gardeners whose colourful displays of flowers and plants have brought so much joy to residents in these challenging times.

Merton in Bloom is part of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom gardening competition, which encourages community groups to brighten up their local area.

Due to the restrictions caused by recent events there will be fewer categories this year and, in addition to entering your own garden into the RHS supported competition, you can nominate a garden or fabulous floral feature that has left you in awe or simply added a moment of peace in your heart.

The four hotly contested categories for 2020 are:

· Best residential front garden.
· Best community or business garden – including pubs, restaurants or schools.
· Best garden features such as window boxes, troughs or planters.
· Best allotment plot.

“Gardening has been more important than ever this year and many residents have discovered unknown green fingered talents.  Gardens have been a lifeline for their owners and passers by. Whether it’s your own space, a wonderful window box or a colourful community area, all growing accomplishments are to be celebrated,” says Merton Cabinet member for Leisure and Culture, Caroline Cooper Marbiah.

All age groups are encouraged to enter, thus showing just how garden pursuits have become fun for everyone.
