Islington in Bloom 2021

Dashed Line

Following the success of last year's online version of the popular gardening competition, Islington In Bloom is back for 2021.

Covid-19 restrictions didn't dampen interest last year as over 130 entries were submitted from green fingered enthusiasts, with the Front Garden, Container Garden and the newly-created Back Garden categories being the most popular.

Many people found gardening a fantastic way to cope with the restrictions, allowing them to enjoy the health benefits of growing and nurturing their plants. 

This year's competition will see the return of the Community Garden category, which had to be postponed due to Covid-19. Since then, many gardening groups have developed safe ways of working in their spaces and have been able to carry on their amazing work.

The competition will be online again, with entrants asked to submit two good photos of their achievements. The entry period will run from the end of March to the beginning of June, with judging taking place in July.

Keep an eye out for the launch on the @islingtoninbloom Instagram page. Get growing and good luck!
