Relaunched in 2012, our annual garden competition continues to flourish, with each year producing more creative colours, vivid variety, and imaginative innovations.
As our communities are full of green fingered customers our annual competition is something that we really look forward to. Despite some testing Scottish weather, each year we are inundated with applications and selecting a winner is becoming more and more difficult.
We are keen to make ‘Blooming Loreburn’ available to as many of our customers as possible so the competition is broken down into four categories, of which there will be one winner of each, as well as an overall winner. Following previous years' success, the Neighbourhood award will be also included to recognise the combined efforts of customers within the same development. Shared Owners are also welcome to participate!
We are pleased to announce that the winners for 2016 are:
1. Floral garden - Mr & Mrs McKnight
2. Vegetable garden - Mr & Mrs Hannah
3. Window box/ hanging basket / tub display - Mrs Skeffington
4. Feature display (decorations / ornaments) - Ms T Scott
5. Neighbourhood award - Hope Place
The winners were judged and selected by our Committee Member Mr John McNaught.
Thank you to everyone who took part, he did not have an easy task selecting the winners!!
If you have any suggestions for a category that you would like to see us introduce then please contact us. For example, some previous categories include ‘Tallest Sunflower’ for under16’s and ‘Best Wildlife / Ecology Garden’. We are open to any ideas that you may have.
