Annual horticultural contest needs green-fingered participants throughout the borough

Kilburn residents, schools and businesses are being invited to take part in this year’s Camden in Bloom competition.

The annual horticultural event is calling on green fingered competitors to transform their balconies, business entrances, food growing areas, school grounds and communal spaces into more beautiful places.

This year’s awards are split into five schools categories, six residential and business categories and the introduction of two new awards; Greenest School and Best Green Camden Zone Project.

Cllr Tulip Siddiq, Camden’s cabinet member for culture and communities, said: “Camden in Bloom transforms our borough into a more attractive place every year. I am really looking forward to residents entering their beautiful gardens and balconies, and taking such pride in their local area.

“I hope people can get planting this month and help to make Camden in Bloom 2013 our best ever.”

Camden in Bloom is supported by a number of local partners, who will be donating this year’s prizes.
