Enfield is one of the greenest boroughs in London and what better way to show off our gardening successes than with the annual Enfield in Bloom competition.
 
Supported by Enfield Council, the competition’s aim is to encourage residents, local businesses and schools to help improve the environment through horticulture.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: “The competition is one of the highlights of the calendar. Every year the quality of the entries exceeds our expectations and we are sure 2017 won't be an exception.

"Communal and residential gardens help to create welcoming spaces in our neighbourhoods and our green spaces are the pride of Enfield. We are therefore very lucky to have such keen gardeners, volunteers and organisations, such as Enfield in Bloom.

“We are always focusing on encouraging growth and sustainability in Enfield and we want residents to have access to green open spaces and high quality leisure activities. Enfield in Bloom plays an important role in helping us to achieve that aim.”
 
Dennis Lushey, Chairman of Enfield in Bloom said, “There is plenty of scope in this year's competition for everyone to show off their gardening skills. In addition, there are many volunteering opportunities with Enfield in Bloom. Over the years we have planted millions of bulbs alongside verges, schools, businesses and parks. If you’d like to volunteer please get in contact and help keep Enfield flourishing with colour.”

All competition entries must be received by Friday 9 June. There are 17 categories including Front Gardens, School Grounds, Innovative Growing Spaces (including Allotments), so there’s a category to suit everyone. Entry forms are available at the Civic Centre on Silver Street, libraries, Clockhouse Nursery on Forty Hill and at www.enfieldinbloom.org.uk.
