Feb: What we will be judged on

Posted on 10th March, 2018

The West Farleigh in Bloom initiative for 2018 has attracted a great deal of interest with 13 people keen to get involved to date – more are always welcome (email editor@thefarleighs.com).


We have entered the South and South East in Bloom ‘Village’ category and are to expect a visit from the judges in July this year.

  • The judges will be looking for horticultural impact (design, colour, appropriate choice of plants) and horticultural practice (cultivation, maintenance, sustainability, new planting) in residential and community areas. These could be Church grounds, car parks, rural businesses such as pubs and green spaces such as verges, parks and open spaces.
  • The competition also aims for Environmental responsibility so wildlife areas, natural habitat, local heritage, litter, dog fouling and ensuring there is pride in the landscape.
  • Finally Community Participation, engaging a wide range of people, awareness and understanding, engagement with young people and other community groups and press coverage.
