Barnet Homes’ Finest Flowers competition is one of the highlights of our summer. Every year, our residents continue to impress the judges with their amazing garden or balcony displays.

And this year has been no different. With many of us at home for longer over the past 18 months, our contestants’ gardens are looking better than ever.

All the entrants were worthy of recognition, but here are those whose gardens impressed the judges the most: our Finest Flowers 2021 winners!

You can view all the entries, including the winners here.
