Ruxley in Bloom is as much about the people as it is about the plants and gardening! Founded on the principle that brightening up our outdoor spaces is good for us all, the competition gives individuals and local communities an opportunity to work together to bring around change.

This year’s competition offers everything you could want from a gardening contest: free entry, professional, independent judges and an abundance of prizes. With a range of categories to choose from, there is something for everyone, from hardy allotmenteers aiming to be the ‘pick of the crop’ to schools striving to be ‘top of the class’!

Heading up our judging panel is Jim Buttress, former Royal Gardener and Horticultural Judge on BBC’s The Big Allotment Challenge.
