Six Town Housing have launched their annual Gardening Competition, with prizes to be won for some of the best gardens across the borough.

Their judges are looking for attractive gardens and eye-catching hanging baskets belonging to tenants that live in Six Town Housing properties managed on behalf of Bury Council, along with schools, youth clubs and community groups based within their neighbourhoods.

All category winners will be awarded with £100 in gardening vouchers, except the Best Young Gardener who will receive a mix of toy, book and gardening vouchers.
The categories for this year’s Gardening Competition are Best Individual Garden, Best Pots, Baskets and Small Spaces, Best Communal Garden, Best Young Gardener (aged under 16), Best Eco-Friendly Garden, Best Edible Garden, Best Community Gardeners and Most Improved Garden.

To enter the competition you must live in a property managed by Six Town Housing. You can nominate your own garden or those of others.

The competition’s judges will be made up of previous winners and will be announced nearer the closing date.

John Merrick, Director of Neighbourhoods at Six Town Housing said “Flower Power showcases the fantastic efforts of local social housing tenants who make their homes and neighbourhoods look great for the benefit of everyone. Last year we received 232 entries, double the number of 2017, and it was great seeing the high calibre of gardens from across the borough.”

The deadline for competition entries is Thursday 4th July 2019. Enter online or view entry criteria at
