Greenwich in Bloom

Enter our annual gardening competition

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is working with Coolings Garden Centre to showcase the green fingered skills of residents, businesses and communities within the borough.

The annual competition gives residents the opportunity to show the rest of the borough how you've been doing your bit to brighten up your garden and improve the local environment.

Greenwich in Bloom continues to help keep the Green in Royal Greenwich, and underlines the Royal Borough's continuing commitment to improving the environment for the benefit of local people.
