Is your front garden a riot of colour? Or your window boxes bring a smile to passers by?
The Fulham Society has launched a contest to find the area’s most attractive, imaginative and vibrant planting – with prizes for the best greenery up for grabs.
Running through June, the free to enter competition is open to all green-fingered residents whose front gardens, planters and window boxes are a joy to behold.
Fiona Fowler, chair of the Fulham Society, said: “We keen to see everyone making the best use of even the smallest front garden space, window box or planter.
“We want to recognise and reward the efforts of those Fulham residents who have kept up the tradition of creating and maintaining an attractive front garden that the whole community can admire and enjoy.”
Win garden centre vouchers
Size doesn’t matter – and front gardens can be paved or unpaved – so there’s plenty of scope for less traditional planting to impress the judges.
The Fulham Society has launched the contest to celebrate and recognise well-designed and executed spaces that give pleasure to those passing by and have an impact throughout the year.
Even front gardens that have been paved for parking, or host a lightwell for a basement extension, are encouraged to enter to showcase how they can still provide a beautiful green space in the urban environment.
Winners will be awarded £150 Palace Gardener vouchers in the best front garden category and best window boxes or planters category, while runners up in each category will receive £50 vouchers.
Initial entry is by sending two photographs, and judges will also make visits in person, with winners announced at the Fulham Society Garden Party on 16 July.
