Cultivation Street

If the answer is yes, you may be in line for £10,000 of National Garden Gift Vouchers, or smaller prizes worth an additional £7,000.

This competition is all about sharing plants and advice, bridging the generations and helping the environment, attracting wildlife and creating the most beautiful front gardens. 

'Cultivation Street' is the name of the competition and its aim is to bring Britain's streets back to life.

It's free to enter and a minimum four neighbouring houses will compete for awards across a range of categories and achievements.

How to Win £10,000

There are eight regional prizes, and five other 'Street' categories. These will reward streets who have:

  • Encouraged the youngest people to get involved
  • Overcome difficulties to achieve spectacular results
  • The most consecutive front gardens involved in the competition
  • Achieved the greatest transformation
  • Demonstrated the greatest understanding of harmony and sustainability

There's also a category for the school that has involved children and families to create the most impressive garden within their grounds.

Judging

David Domoney is on the look out for communities who share his passion for gardening and want to create a sense of pride in where they live.

The judges will be looking for streets with stunning gardens and communities who take  pride in their pristine lawns, tidy paths, neatly manicured trees, bright flowers and interesting shrubs. 

Gardens that make everyone feel better and that encourage people take a detour on their way to work or school, just to have a glimpse.

The competition is running all summer with a closing date of 26 August 2013, and judging will take place the first week of September.
