Last chance to enter Camden in Bloom 2015

Don’t miss out on your chance to enter our 2015 Camden in Bloom competition which is this year embracing the theme 'greener together'.

With just two weeks left until the closing date for entries, we are inviting all Camden residents and businesses to dig out their gardening gloves, showcase their sustainability schemes and get involved in making Camden even more beautiful.

To help and inspire you to spruce up your green space, former Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins will be running a free workshop on Monday 13 July at 6pm. The exciting workshop – exclusive to Camden in Bloom – will cover basic growing and gardening tips that can be applied to your own home or community spaces. Tickets can be booked via Eventbrite.

In partnership with Project Dirt, Camden in Bloom celebrates both the visual and environmental benefits of fantastic gardening and wider green projects happening across the borough. This year's competition categories include:

  • Best community growing project
  • Best individual garden
  • Best balcony
  • Best business entrance
  • Best environmental project.

Winning entries last year ranged from renovating neglected and disused places to transforming unconventional areas into tranquil green spaces away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby streets. Camden Town Unlimited, for example, brought new life to a disused rooftop to create a suntrap surrounded by wildflowers and decorative ornaments - now the perfect space for a summer lunch or to host an event.

If you think you have a space that deserves recognition this year, nominate your project or garden here before the competition closes on 17 July.

Judges will take into account visual impact, design, the benefit to the local community and the positive impact on the local environment. All prize-winners will receive a certificate and a voucher from the Camden Garden Centre.
