Wight In Bloom

Wight In Bloom 2019!

Thanks to our new headline sponsor Southern Vectis and co-sponsors Liz Earle and the Isle of Wight County Press, Wight In Bloom will bathe the Garden Isle in a sea of glorious technicolour!

Entries are now closed for Wight In Bloom 2019…

Now we wait with baited breath as the judges make their final decisions!

Alan Titchmarsh had this message:

The backbone of Wight in Bloom is the amateur gardener who showcases their work in small front gardens, window boxes and hanging baskets, or enters the competition to have their vegetable plots or water features judged. There’s even a category for younger people, as well as the more established community display categories.

The judges scores will be divided equally between the following 5 criteria:

  • SUSTAINABILITY (NEW FOR 2019) – composting, wildlife friendly, recycling and use of natural resources are just some of the elements that our judges will be looking out for.
  • OVERALL IMPRESSION – initial impact of the garden
  • DESIGN/LAYOUT – use of plants/features/range of plants etc
  • HORTICULTURAL PRACTICE – cultivation & maintenance/quality of plants/layout etc
  • INNOVATION – creative design, use of form and colour, use of features/furniture/infrastructure etc
