Sue Cheek, Overall winner of Wight in Bloom 2019

For the first time since 2019, Wight In Bloom will be celebrating the Isle of Wight’s horticultural talents this summer – and we’re being asked to join in.

Categories in the popular Wight In Bloom competition range from small front gardens, pubs and businesses, to the gardens of large visitor attractions, with criteria that include innovation, sustainability and design of space.

Residents and businesses can nominate themselves or a neighbour for Wight In Bloom online or by picking up an entry form at garden centres across the Island.

The deadline for entries is 12th June and judging takes place between 15th June and 1st July.

Winners will be recognised at a celebration event at the beautiful Northwood House in Cowes, where gardening guru and Wight In Bloom Patron, Alan Titchmarsh MBE, will be handing out awards.

Will Myles, Managing Director of Visit Isle of Wight, is encouraging residents and businesses to get involved:

“We are delighted Wight in Bloom makes a return this year. We encourage anyone to enter, and we have a category for everyone. From small gardens to large tourist attractions and everything in between. We are looking forward to seeing the Island bloom with colour this year.

“We are very pleased to welcome Alan Titchmarsh as Patron of Wight In Bloom, who will be awarding the prizes at the ceremony this July”.
