Haringey in Bloom 2009

image

Haringey in Bloom is back…

The free Council competition, sponsored by the Sunshine Garden Centre, encourages and rewards residents, businesses, schools, voluntary and community groups who take pride in their environment by brightening up and improving the borough using floral and shrub displays.

This year there’s a new emphasis in the competition. To coincide with the launch of Haringey’s Greenest Borough Strategy, and to encourage gardeners to make the most of Haringey’s green spaces and think about the ways in which they garden, judges will be looking at whether the entry is an example of sustainable gardening.

Winners of Haringey in Bloom could see their entry form part of Haringey Council’s borough submission into the London in Bloom competition, where efforts may be recognised as being among some of the best in London!

For more information and an online entry form visit Haringey’s Bloom 2009 webpage.
