Horley in Bloom Competition Launched
The Horley in Bloom Organising Committee has launched this year’s competition. Categories are as follows:
- Residential Front Garden
- Residential Back Garden
- Residential Flat
- Hanging Basket / Planter
- Orchid Class ** New for this Year **
- Guesthouse / B&B
- Commercial (includes Pubs)
This year we have a new Orchid Class which we hope will prove popular. There will as usual be awards for the best newcomer to the competition and for the entry deemed by the judges to be the best example of a “Cottage Garden”. As this is the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the judges will also be making a special award for the best Jubilee themed entry. Judges will be particularly keen this year to see evidence of the use of recycled water and the composting of green waste. Extra marks may be awarded where plants have been grown from seed. We are delighted that Court Lodge Residents Association and Horley Floral Art Group are once again arranging their separate competitions as part of Horley in Bloom.
The Horley in Bloom Committee is keen to maintain the progress of the competition, now in its 18th year, in particular following the success of the recent Horley in Spring competition.”
Horley has once again entered the South & South East in Bloom Competition and hopes to improve on the Silver Gilt Awards gained last year.
Horley in Bloom entry forms are available from the Town Council Offices or can be downloaded from our web site www.horleysurrey-tc.gov,uk. The closing date for entries is Wednesday 27 June 2012. Judging will take place during the first week in July (allotments will be judged in August) and the Awards Evening will be held at Regent Hall on Friday 28 September 2012.
