Competition hots up for Charlton’s green-fingered

Claire Williams from the Charlton Community Gardens project sends us more details for the edible window box competetion.

Charlton Community Gardens are calling all novice and experienced Charlton Gardeners to take part in an edible window box competition.

Enjoy creating sustainably planted containers while reaping the rewards of homegrown healthy and delicious plants and being in with a chance of winning generous prizes donated by local shops Ottie and the Bea, Marnells, G. G. Sparkes and Well Bean.

Ideas for edibles can include flowers such as nasturtiums, violas and lavenders, as well as the more traditional tomatoes, peppers,  herbs and many more. 

Entry is free, to both the under 16s and over 16s categories  and judging takes place in the first week of September.   For more details and an entry form, please contact Barbara by 30 June on  windoxboxcompetition[at]gmail.com or call 07594 107607.
