A team of volunteers will be exploring the streets of Bury St Edmunds for a week this month with the aim of finding gardens which brighten up the town.
The 60 Bury in Bloom volunteers will be looking at the front gardens of both homes and busiensses throughout the town to find those which work to improve their area.
With the town split into ten areas, a team of six volunteers will cover each area between Monday, July 13 and Sunday, July 19.
The teams of judges will award Certificates of Merit to those gardens, residential and commercial, which are deemed to display attractive use of garden and container grown plants which enhance the appearance of their neighbourhood.
Melanie Lesser, Bury in Bloom coordinator, said: “No entry is necessary and last year we had some lovely comments from gardeners delighted to receive the surprise award.”
To mark the fourth year in which Bury in Bloom has awarded Certificates of Merit, the organisation has introduced a Highly Commended Award.
This accolade will be given to gardens which judges feel have made a very impressive impact on their surrounding area.
