Winners and Awards Ceremony 2016

Brighton & Hove City in Bloom logo

Competition categories for 2016 have been focused on sustainability, community and wildlife. Whilst summer bedding and baskets have been a tradition, in recent times it has become important to recognise the need to utilise more natural gardening. These practices protect natural ecosystems and reduce the amount of care and energy required to maintain a healthy garden. The categories this year highlight bio-diversity and all the winners will have demonstrated a certain level in their entries.
