Guildford in Bloom
Guildford in Bloom brings together community groups, businesses, schools and residents to promote imaginative ways to make the town and surrounding areas look their best and champion Guildford's natural environment.
School gardening competition 2020
The Guildford in Bloom 2020 School Gardening Competition is now open.
As this is an Olympic year, our theme is the 'Olympic Games'. We are looking for imaginatively themed school gardens or novel containers.
How to enter
Entry is free and easy - simply complete the school gardening competition 2020 entry form.
Encouraging learning, health and wellbeing, gardening is a perfect opportunity for young people to get green fingered, creative and active.
There is plenty of time for you to plan, plant and watch your gardens grow. The closing date for entry is 22 May 2020. Gardens and containers will be judged between 1 - 12 June 2020 and the award ceremony will be held on Wednesday 17 June 2020 at Clandon Park Garden Centre, Clandon Park, West Clandon, GU4 7RQ.
Your 'Olympic Games' themed gardens or containers could include vegetables, encourage wildlife, especially bees and butterflies and use recycled containers and objects. Have lots of fun planning your garden entry and 'Bee Happy'!
