Win prizes for your gardening skills in new SNG In Bloom competition

28 May 2024

We know there are lots of committed, creative and green-fingered customers living in our communities and we appreciate the time and cost involved in garden upkeep. We want to celebrate your home gardening efforts, so we’re launching SNG In Bloom- a competition for all SNG customers and your gardens and green spaces of all shapes, colours and sizes!

This is part of our Living Together Programme, a Community Investment initiative that aims to reduce minor anti-social behaviour and bring communities together through a holistic package of support, funding and resources. We are delivering the Living Together Programme through three different strands: #Innovate, #Befriend and our #InBloom gardening competition!

Your indoor or outdoor garden, green space, or community garden can win up to £200 in vouchers if you're crowned winners of our SNG In Bloom competition, so apply today! 

Applications close on Wednesday 31 July at 5pm.


  • Green and Glam award. This award is all about celebrating bright and vibrant green spaces, especially customers and/or communities who have added colour to their garden or scheme to reduce issues such as fly tipping and waste issues. This award is for individual or shared communal gardens- particularly in communal areas such as alleys, bins, flytipped or overgrowing weeded areas.
  • Home Garden In Bloom award. This award goes to the SNG whose private garden is the most outstanding in beauty and flourishing greenery. It doesn’t matter how big or small your garden is! This award is for individual / private home gardens only.
  • Thriving Community Garden award. Have you worked as a team to create and maintain your community garden or communal grounds? Customers who look after communal gardens or green spaces within their community can also take part in this competition, as long as you have been given permission to work on that particular green space or communal ground. This award is for communal/shared gardens only.
  • Small Garden Innovator Award. Awarded to SNG customers who innovatively utilise small inside or outdoor garden spaces like balconies. An opportunity to showcase your blossoming greenery in containers, hanging baskets, house plants or even something a little different
    * Please be aware that any gardening or plant arrangements must meet SNG’s health and safety requirements in order to avoid fire risks, click here to find out more about this. This award is for individual/ private home gardens only.
  • Sustainable Garden award. Have you created a sustainable and eco-friendly haven in your garden? This category's for you! For those who grow their own food, attract wildlife with bug hotels and bird boxes, and use recycled elements. Let's see your greenest and most sustainable gardens!
