Camden is set for a bright and colourful summer with this year's Camden in Bloom competition on its way.
Camden in Bloom
The Council's 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.
Schools, residential areas and businesses are invited to take part. The competition will be split into five schools categories and six residential and business categories.
This year's awards will also recognise sustainability initiatives by introducing two new awards; Greenest School and Best Green Camden Zone Project.
Camden in Bloom is supported by a number of local partners, who will be donating this year's prizes. These will be presented in the summer by special guest judges.
Councillor 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."
