Buckingham in Bloom Contest 2023

Buckingham Town Council is excited to now be accepting entries for this year’s Buckingham in Bloom competition.

Open to all residents of Buckingham, this fun and free to enter competition has four categories, best kept front garden, best hanging baskets/containers, best wildlife garden and best community garden.

This year’s contest will also feature a Garden on a Plate competition for Children. Judging will take place on Thursday 27th July in the courtyard garden at Buckingham Library.

The rules are very simple in that all entries must be visible from the kerbside. The Judges will be looking for colour, variety of plants, overall design, whether it attracts insects and other wildlife, garden maintenance and planting schemes which achieve sustainability, use of space and originality. Fantastic prizes are on offer for the winners of each category.

You can enter online using the form below or you can pick up a paper form from the Tourist Information Centre or Buckingham Library.

Closing date for entries is Friday 21st July and the judges are looking forward to going round and judging the entries at the end of July as part of the Buckingham Fringe Week.  Winners be announced shortly after that, and prizes awarded to first, second and third-place winners in each category. Chair of the Town Centre & Events Committee Cllr Robin Stuchbury, said that “The Town Centre & Events Committee have agreed to run the Buckingham In Bloom competition again this year.  This is an opportunity for residents to show off their floral displays and help to improve the vibrancy and colour of Buckingham.”

Some of last year’s winners are pictured below:
