Last week the winners of the Sevenoaks ‘In Bloom’ competition were crowned and once again, Sevenoaks District Council and Coolings Garden Centre had a tough time choosing the winners.
There were eight categories ranging from front gardens, back gardens, allotments, pollinators and more.
Lots of residents and businesses entered the competition and last week, the winners were presented with their awards at a ceremony in Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt.
Sevenoaks District Council Chairman and In Bloom judge, Cllr Avril Hunter, says: “We had such a good time judging all the beautiful gardens across the District and we’d like to thank all entrants and Coolings. There were some fine examples of eco-friendly gardens and community projects.
“The standard this year was particularly high, making the judging especially challenging. With that in mind, I would like to congratulate not just the winners, but everyone else who took part too.”
