Hidden Gardens of Redbridge

a wildlife gardenEach year our council holds a Redbridge in Bloom competition sponsored by local businesses and others. Now I know it’s September, but as all you gardeners know, you need to start now for next year. Preparing the soil, taking cuttings, over-wintering plants and whatever else you get up to in the potting shed.

There are six categories in the competition, but as one keen gardener and reader of this blog has pointed out, not one for rear gardens. This seems a bit unfair on those who have no front garden to speak of, but do have a back garden. She has written in to suggest that they include this category, so if you are interested why not give her some support and voice your views too.

And while we are on the subject, how about a Wildlife Garden category and an Allotment category [assuming we’ve got some left].

  1. And what about the ones our councillors want to bury under concrete?

  2. How about a category for most depressing and dirty front garden, and shame the buggers?

  3. There's at least one councillor's house that could be the obvious winner!!

  4. No, Cllr Huggett has just recently had her front garden paved over, so most of the rubbish has gone.
