Entries should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: Shrewsbury in Bloom Town of Flowers Competition, Riggs Hall, The Library, Castle Gates, Shrewsbury, SY1 2AS, by midday Thursday 30 June.
Judging of the entries will take place in mid-July.
Keith Roberts, chairman of the Shrewsbury in Bloom Group, said: “It has been a very tough couple of years for everyone and with people spending more time at home, there has been a marked increase in people improving where they live, including a greater interest in gardening.
“And it is this increased interest and hard work undertaken by the people of Shrewsbury that the Bloom Group would like to acknowledge through this year’s competition.
“With summer already here, people are completing their garden planting schemes, and I would encourage our residents to think about entering our competition, or nominating someone else’s great displays.”
Shrewsbury in Bloom is a non-profit committee, which brings together interested groups and individuals to implement a programme for Shrewsbury's floral enhancement, environmental improvements and community projects. It is the driving force behind Shrewsbury's entry into the Heart of England in Bloom and Britain in Bloom competitions.
