St Ives Town Council’s garden competition is back, and entries can be made either in person at the council offices or online.

St Ives garden

To enter, share photos and videos of your green spaces and you will be in the chance to win vouchers from a local garden centre.

Share up to five photos or videos, either on Instagram (@stivestowncouncil and tagging #BloomingStIves2022), by email on or by bringing your entries to the Guildhall.

The panel will review the entries and may pay entrants a visit. The closing date is Sunday, 24th July. To validate your entry the council will contact you to confirm your address. If you have entered someone else’s garden, then you will need to give the council their address/ contact details.
