Kingsteignton in Bloom Competition 2023

We are pleased to announce that this competition will take place again this year! 

We welcome entries from residents, businesses and schools, pre-schools, children’s nurseries and child-minders who involve the children they care for, in a little gardening.

This is not a professional competition, it is just for you to be proud of what you have created in your garden and would like to share a photo of and meet like minded gardeners.  Whether you have a beautiful single hanging basket, container or a whole fruit and vegetable patch please consider entering.  If you are a really keen gardener and wish to enter your whole garden then please do so also.

We will have a couple of judges and a photographer visit you on one of the judging days, either July 14th or 15th and prizes will be awarded at a presentation event on August 16th at a local venue. TBA
