Green-fingered residents, businesses, schools and groups are being invited to take part in Doncaster’s annual gardening competition.

Doncaster in Bloom is back, and once again people are encouraged to brighten up a corner of the town, with judges looking for creativity, colour and originality in gardens across the borough.

The competition is organised by Doncaster Council and cabinet member for environment and waste, Coun Christine Mills says she hopes 2013 will be the competitions biggest year so far.

She said: “Doncaster in Bloom is about rewarding the efforts of determined gardeners creating inspiring outdoor spaces sometimes in the most unexpected of places so I hope that people will be inspired to take part!”

The competition has eight categories which include: Best Garden, Best Display, Premises, Community, Best Wildlife/Sustainable Garden, Schools, Unusual Container and Schools.

Entries are invited until June 21, and judging will take place over the summer months, with an awards presentation in October.
