Melanie Lesser and Elizabeth Clement with some of the soon-to-be-awarded certificates of merit
Bury in Bloom will soon be judging the front gardens of homes and businesses around Bury St Edmunds.
Throughout this week, a team of 70 volunteers will decide which properties in the town make the best use of plants, be it in pots, hanging baskets or gardens, to enhance the appearance of their neighbourhood.
The Certificates of Merit Scheme, which saw 1,300 certificates awarded last year, won Anglia in Bloom’s Best Community Project 2015. No entry is necessary.

The certificates are awarded to residential and commercial properties displaying attractive use of garden and container grown plants at the front of their property that enhance the appearance of their neighbourhood.
The Highly Commended Award is given to gardens of particular merit.
No entry is necessary and our team of over 50 judges will be looking at the front gardens between Monday July 11th and Sun 17th July 2016 and pop a certificate through the door.
We also have a Highly commended award given to those gardens that make a significant impact on their neighbourhood.
If you would like to nominate a friend of neighbour then please let us know.
