Chesterfield In Bloom competitions now open

Green-fingered residents are being encouraged to show off their talents in this year’s Chesterfield In Bloom competitions.

With more than six categories there is the opportunity for everyone to get involved no matter how big or small their outside space is.

Chris Turner, Chair of the Chesterfield in Bloom committee, said: “Our Chesterfield In Bloom competitions always receive lots of entries and they are always of a really high standard, making the judging process very difficult.

“I know over the last year lots of people have put a lot of time into enhancing their gardens and outdoor space, I cannot wait to see what they have achieved.”

People have until Friday 18 June to submit their entries or to nominate their neighbours in the following categories:

  • Best Front Garden
  • Best Back Garden up to 80m2
  • Best Back Garden more than 80m2
  • Best Container Garden
  • Best Blooming Pub/Restaurant
  • Best Allotment (with subcategories based on size)

There is also an exclusive competition for council tenants, and entries are invited for Best Garden (either front or back) and Best Containers.

The ever-popular schools’ competition makes a return this year too – with flower and vegetable categories.

Chesterfield will be representing the East Midlands region in an online version of Britain In Bloom this year. The council is also entering East Midlands In Bloom and winners of the above competitions may also be included in the judging later this year.

Entry forms and more details are available on the Chesterfield In Bloom Competitions page.
