Blooming Loreburn 2020
Entries are now 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.
These awards are an opportunity for you to showcase your plants/ gardens. You have an opportunity to win some prize money (in voucher form) if you are selected as the best in category. Hopefully more time in our gardens results in even more tenants willing to enter their efforts in Loreburn Housing’s ‘In Bloom’ Awards 2020? - It is just for fun really
