See the Haringey in Bloom (HiB) 2015 Awards page for full breakdown of each category.
We want to encourage all gardeners to make the most of Haringey’s green spaces and think about ways in which they garden and encourage biodiversity. Judges will look and judge each entry on whether it’s sustainable and does the most it can to encourage wildlife, as well as the impact the colour and use of plants has on its immediate area.
Sustainable gardening attracts and encourages wildlife to thrive and contribute to the enhancement of local biodiversity. We’ve got lots of tips to help you garden sustainably.
