For us one of the most important things we can do to combat climate change is to emphasize the personal, social and environmental benefits of gardening and of course the Enfield in Bloom gardening competition is one of the very best ways in which we can do this. There are many categories sponsored by local businesses or environmental groups who are committed to supporting our efforts to improve our environment. The variety of categories allows everyone to enter from Front Gardens to Best Residential street, Communal Gardens and Best Environmental and Wildlife Garden and Meadows. There are also categories for Business Premises Frontage, Public Houses, Public Buildings and Best School Grounds. The competition is free and the majority of entrants are amateur gardeners who have a keen interest in gardening and a desire to brighten up our day with their beautiful flowers. Judging takes place end of June to the beginning of July, consideration is given for design, colour, maintenance, and for entries that look good all year round. Account is taken for the difficulties of a site – perhaps it is awkward to water or on a public highway. So please do not be hesitant in submitting your entry – why not just give it a go!! The Enfield in Bloom entry form can be obtained from  May at the Civic Centre, Libraries, Leisure Centres and some Garden Centres or by downloading a copy from our website that will also give a comprehensive list of categories.
