Garden, Allotment and Best Kept Close Competition

Whether you have a garden, window box, community space or a landing, there’s a category for you to enter in the Garden, Allotment and Best Kept Close Competition. It’s a great way to get involved in the community and encourage others, including schools, citizens and businesses, to take pride and interest in the city.

The competitions are being run by Dundee City Council as part of the ongoing ‘Take Pride in Your City’ campaign.  They have helped contribute towards Dundee’s success in both the Beautiful Scotland and Britain in Bloom campaigns, with Dundee being awarded a Silver Gilt Medal and the Community Involvement Award in Beautiful Scotland 2016.

Competitions are free to enter and open to all within the Dundee City boundary. Entry forms are available below or by calling 01382 433141.
