Innisfree Creative Gardens Competition 2022

Back in 2019, we ran a brilliant Gardening Competition and had some wonderful entries.  Unfortunately, the pandemic put paid to continuing it for 2020 and 2021, so we are really excited to finally be able to launch our 2022 competition!

As the weather warms up and the flowers begin to bloom, we want to showcase your gardens and outdoor spaces! Are they full of colour, bees and wildlife, do you have some fantastic trees or have you created some amazing edible goodness?

Have you been busy in lockdown creating some amazing gardens? We would like to hear from you!

Early Bird entries that are received by 30 April 2022 can receive a small grant to help buy plants and materials. Grants available are £15 for hanging baskets or window boxes, £20 for a small space patio or balcony/edible garden, £25 for an individual garden/wildlife garden, and £25 for a communal garden.
