Hillingdon in Bloom

Why not enter our Hillingdon in Bloom competition and keep your neighbourhood looking bright and attractive?

Whether you're new to gardening or a seasoned gardener, there are lots of different categories to enter for all ages and abilities.

This year, we have introduced a new category - a 'Best Platinum Jubilee Display' to celebrate the Queen's 70 years on the Throne.

We also see the return of the 'Best Park and Bloom Display' category, which encourages residents to include plants and flowers in the front gardens, alongside their cars, tackling the rise in vanishing front gardens, which has a harmful impact on the local environment.


  • Best Window Box Display (window boxes must be either on or attached to the house windowsill and not a free-standing container)
  • Best Platinum Jubilee Display (a red, white and blue or a purple and white display in your garden, pots, hanging baskets or window boxes to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee)
  • Best Hanging Basket
  • Best Balcony Display (on an open-fronted balcony)
  • Best Residential Garden Display
  • The Roome Cup (awarded to the garden that is judged as making the greatest contribution to wildlife conservation)
  • Best Park and Bloom Display (a front garden with plants, flowers, and room for a car)
  • Best Novelty Garden Display (for an exhibit within a garden that incorporates temporary planting and/or garden ornaments and structures)
  • Best Business Establishment Display
