Communities in Bloom’s fifth annual Residential & Business Garden Contest has begun.
Entries must be received at the City of Campbell River Parks Department, 385 South Dogwood St., by 4 p.m., May 20. Registration forms can be picked up from any of our major sponsors: CR Garden Centre, Sticks & Stones, Willow’s Market and Lady Bug Nursery, or online under What’s New at www.campbellriver.ca
Anyone can enter the contest, from the experienced to novice gardeners, in several categories:
- small residential yard,
- large residential,
- patio / balcony gardens and full size and half-size community plots
New this year, there’s also a child’s garden category and a category for multi-residential gardens. This gives all apartment buildings, condos, townhouses, long-term care residences, etc. a chance to compete in their own classification.
Businesses are welcome to compete in the business frontage or business property competition.
The Communities in Bloom committee would like to thank our major sponsors: Lady Bug Nursery, CR Garden Centre, Sticks & Stones and Willow’s Market, with special recognition for the generosity of Shar-Kare, Brymix, Renuable Resources, Serendipity in the Garden, Comox Strathcona Waste Management, Compost Diva Solutions, Nijhuis Landscapes, City of Campbell River and the CR Garden Club.
