Loreburn Blooms

Entries are open for this year's competition!!!

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!

Flower in bloomThe categories for 2017 are:
1. Floral garden 
2. Vegetable garden 
3. Window box/ hanging basket / tub display 
4. Feature display (decorations / ornaments) 
5. Neighbourhood award

The winners will be judged and selected by our Committee Members.

Closing date is 10th July 2017.

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.
