Botley in Bloom - 2022



Spring is in the air and with this thought, Botley in Bloom is planning its Annual Summer Gardening Competition for Summer ’22.


In 2021 we held our Competition (so many new entrants), but due to Covid, our Presentation Evening was scaled back.    We endeavoured to administer the Competition on line, which proved difficult for some, but this year paper entry forms are back.


Our Competition is open to everyone living within the Parish of Botley.  Entry forms, both on line and paper, will be available from the beginning of June, with Judging taking place during week commencing 11 July.   Our e.mail address is: botleybloom @yahoo.com   We can either e.mail you an entry form, or paper entry forms will be available from Clarke Mews Estate Agents, High Street, Botley.


We have fixed the date for our Presentation Evening for Winners/Runners up -  Thursday 6 of October in the Masonic Centre, when hopefully the Mayor of Eastleigh will make our presentations of Trophies, Plaques and Certificates.  We plan to have Speakers, a raffle, plus our usual end of evening finger buffet.


Gardening Categories will be :


Front Gardens, Back Gardens, Environmental Gardens, Cottage Gardens, Courtyard Gardens, Baskets/Containers, Vegetable Plots/Allotments, so there’s something for everyone.


Botley in Bloom endeavours to be self-funding, but would not be able to continue to hold its Competition, without the generous sponsorship of  Clarke Mews Estate Agents, Eastleigh Borough Council and Rosewood Building & Electrical.



If you were an entrant in 2021, you will automatically receive an entry form.  We welcome those of you who have recently moved to Botley and our Gardening Categories have something for everyone.  So come on gardening enthusiasts – get those seeds planted, plugs potted on, ready for a great summer gardening display.
