Nottingham In Bloom Student Garden Competition

Green-fingered students are invited to enter the Nottingham in Bloom Student Garden Competition 2013.

Pleasant gardens have a very positive impact on the surrounding area, and although students don’t usually live in their houses very long, many of you work hard to maintain your outdoor space and bring out the best in it.


There were two winners in the Student Garden category of the 2012 competition – Frazer Bowen, who had reclaimed an overgrown and sparse garden to create a vegetable patch and chicken run, and James Bailey, whose tiny back yard teemed with plants, including flowers and vegetables.

Melanie Futer, Manager of Off Campus Student Affairs said: “Students are part of the community and some of them are very keen gardeners. By backing these awards, we are encouraging more students to take pride in their garden and their community.”

So are you growing your own fruit and veg? Is your back garden a haven for the birds and bees? Or do you just take pride in making sure your outdoor space is neat, tidy and well-maintained? You’re in with a chance of winning a £100 book voucher in the Student Garden Competition.

You can enter the competition by filling out the form here.
