Who has the best garden or hanging baskets in Louth?

It is time to enter the Lovely Louth competition, organised by Louth Town Council in partnership with Louth in Bloom.

This year there are three new categories - Best School Garden, Royal Horticultural Society Annual Theme which is edible this year and Best Perennial Planting.

Linda Blankley, Town Clerk, said: “We run this competition every year to reward those members of our community who put in a lot of work to keep their front gardens, hanging baskets, window boxes and borders well maintained. A visibly well kept property adds to the overall attractiveness of the town.”

This year the Louth in Bloom group is keen to show the East Midlands in Bloom judges some of the Lovely Louth entries. Chris Brook, Louth in Bloom Chair, said: “Last year the judges commented that they would love to see more resident’s gardens as these all add to the overall look of the town. It would be fantastic to discover some hidden gems in this year’s Lovely Louth competition to show the judges.

“We entered Louth in the East Midlands in Bloom Competition for the first time last year and received a Silver Gilt Award in the Large Towns Category. This year we are going for gold and we hope that everyone will come together to help Louth achieve that!”

Entry forms can be collected from Louth Town Council, Sessions House, Eastgate, or the Town Hall.
