West Farleigh in Bloom



West Farleigh in Bloom


West Farleigh entered the Village category of South and South East in Bloom for the first time in 2018 and we received a Bronze certificate which we were all very pleased with.


In 2019 we have once again entered the Village cateogry and also the Churchyard category additionally. We look forward to a colourful year ahead (and hopefully Silver!)

April: Teston Lane Triangle

Posted on 21st April, 2018

On Friday 20th April Monty Don suggested that his Gardener's World viewers plant their sunflower seedlings this weekend. We whole heartedly agree! There seems to be quite a buzz in the village already around the Sunflower competition, however as a reminder - Tallest Sunflower competition in your front gardens as well as best Sunflower display visible to the road with judging this July. 


Please do fill out the below entry form so we know who is entering. If its possible to email it to editor@thefarleighs.co.uk or else drop the entry into The Good Intent pub on the green for us to collect:


Age Range

There are many ideas forming to add colour and support wildlife in West Farleigh. On Sunday 22nd April a working party is focusing their attention on the triangle that adjoins Lower Road up from Teston Bridge with the aim to add some colour. On Thursday 26th April Kent Wildlife Trust are visiting the village to look at the possibility of Roadside Nature Reserves and to give a tour of Quarry Wood. In the mean time BBC2 are also showcasing the Britain in Bloom competition at 6:30 in the evenings that may give us all some ideas as well.
