Green-fingered growers had their hard work rewarded at a special ceremony last week.

Alnwick in Bloom held its presentation evening at The Alnwick Garden, when prizes were awarded for the annual garden competition, Northumbria in Bloom and the sunflower challenge, run in association with the Gazette.

Its chairman Elizabeth Jones said: “It’s been an exceptional year, not just for the Northumbria in Bloom awards but all horticultural achievements in and around town.

“We thought it couldn’t get any better but this year it did.

“Although the season started late and has stayed that way, it didn’t stop our gardeners really pulling out the stops and producing the finest of displays.”

Alnwick in Bloom’s annual general meeting is being held on Tuesday, November 3, at 6pm in the Mechanics Institue, Alnwick. Contact alnwickinbloom@qtq.org
