Tenant and leaseholder garden competition

Photos of some of the winning gardens from the 2021 competition

Every year we encourage our tenants and leaseholders to enter our garden competition. Take part if you are a keen gardener with a talent for growing plants and you take pride in your garden.

You could have a large wildflower garden, a small vegetable patch or a few pots and tubs by your front door. Whatever size your garden is, we want you to enter – plus, there is £500 worth of vouchers to win!

We are committed to supporting biodiversity across the city and encourage you to do so in your garden. Read our biodiversity pages to find out more.
