Do you have no garden of your own? Are you interested in making your local area more attractive with flower and plant displays?

Since 2006 over 100 residents of all ages have joined one of our 28 clubs, even winning at the BBC Gardeners’ World competition.

Gardening Clubs receive vouchers for plants and equipment, together with advice on gardening and aspects of health and safety.

Finest Flowers Competition

finest flowers

In 2007 we launched what is now our annual finest flower competition, to encourage residents to take pride in their homes and neighbourhoods. A judging panel consisting of Barnet Group Board members, staff and residents from our scrutiny group, PAG visit every garden entered into the Summer competition.

Winners receive gardening vouchers and are presented with a certificate at our annual resident awards event. The competition is increasingly popular with residents and the standard gets higher every year, making a real impact across our estates and homes.

Categories include;

  • Best Front/Back Garden
  • Best New Gardener
  • Best Communal Garden
  • Best Garden in a Sheltered Scheme
  • Geoff Beddingfield Award – for outstanding efforts within the gardening community
