Amateur gardening competition
We are encouraging the residents of Redbridge to grow their love for gardening as we celebrate 26 years of Redbridge in Bloom, our amateur gardening competition.
Whatever your level of gardening expertise, help us spread a message of love and hope `In support of the NHS’ by creating your very own rainbow garden. Fill your front gardens with pretty flowers bursting with all the colours of the rainbow.
We are spending more time in our gardens either as a place to relax on a sunny day, part of daily exercise or as a new found hobby.
Gardening has a vast number of health benefits; a great stress reliever, reduces anxiety, an enjoyable form of exercise plus exposure to direct sunlight exposure will increase vitamin D levels. The whole family can take pleasure in this outdoor activity whilst weeding and planting together or you can use this as an opportunity for some time alone.
