Flowers are blooming across Victoria and residents are encouraged to recognise some of the most glorious gardens by nominating them for the Victoria in Bloom competition.

Housing Minister Martin Foley has invited public or community-managed housing tenants who maintain and produce exceptional gardens to enter the annual competition.

‘‘This is a wonderful opportunity for some of our best gardeners to put their talents on display and showcase their green thumbs,’’ Mr Foley said.

‘‘This is the perfect time to recognise and celebrate tenants in the social housing community who put so much effort into keeping their small patch of Victoria beautiful.’’

Victoria in Bloom recognises tenants who maintain gardens in their neighbourhood and celebrates the hard work they put in to producing some of the most attractive and sustainable gardens in their communities.

Whether you have a backyard, a balcony, an enclosed garden or a container garden, there’s an opportunity for everyone to participate.

Last year’s Gardener of the Year award winner was Dennis Troedel, for his sustainable oasis in Abbotsford.

This year’s categories include:

Best Balcony Garden.

Best Small Enclosed or Container Garden.

Best Household Garden.

Best Edible Garden.

Best Sustainable Garden.

Best Common Area Garden.

Best Community Garden Plot.

Best Young Gardener.

Entries for the Victoria in Bloom Competition close on December 1 and can be made at: http://
