Blooming Dales Competition

Derbyshire Dales District Council are this year running 'The Blooming Dales' competition.

The idea is that they want local people to nominate their neighbours' well-kept residential gardens for recognition.

They are also looking for nominations for community spaces - including school gardens in a competition that will feature separate awards in the southern, central and northern areas of the Derbyshire Dales.

You are invited to nominate a special garden (yours or someone else's) in the following categories:

- Domestic Gardens

- Community or communal spaces (including school gardens)

1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded and a prize giving ceremony will take place in the autumn.

Closing date for nominations is 31st July 2013

Nominations can be made on line by completing the form at

After 31st July, DDDC will contact you in order for you to submit a photograph and a paragraph of up to 100 words to say why you feel this garden is special.

Remember gardens will soon be at their peak so make sure you take your photograph at its best ready for submission.

A panel of judges will look at the photographs and shortlist the best gardens in each area. These will be visited by the judges towards the end of August.
