Farnham in Bloom at 30

Farnham in Bloom is 30 this year and although restrictions are in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus, there are still plenty of ways people can get involved and celebrate this horticultural milestone.

This year, the judges from South and South East in Bloom will judge Farnham in Bloom remotely. Farnham Town Council will submit a portfolio of evidence demonstrating how it has met the judging criteria. The judges will look for evidence that previous standards are being maintained and how the campaign has adapted to the restrictions.

Councillor Sally Dickson, Lead Member for Farnham in Bloom says: “We are having to approach Farnham in Bloom in a slightly different way this year, but the good news is that there are still many ways for people to take part.

“Competitions such as Secret Gardens include categories which will appeal to novice gardeners through to old hands. To show how communities have pulled together over the past few weeks, I think it would be wonderful to see whole streets of people growing sunflowers in their front gardens or planting up rainbow coloured hanging baskets as symbols of hope.”

To show the In Bloom judges how Farnham has embraced this year’s campaign, please email bloom@farnham.gov.uk with photos of your garden, veg patch and any other garden project you have started since lockdown.
