This years categories are:

  • Young Gardener of the year (16 and under)
    • We have some enthusiastic young gardeners in Oldham who create wonderful colourful outdoor spaces.
  • Most Improved Garden -“Harry Burns Memorial Award”
    • The award recognises customers who have taken responsibility for the space they live in and particularly where they have spent time and effort improving their outdoor space. We would need before and after photographs.
  • Best Community Garden Category (Oldham East, Oldham West, Oldham and the Rest)
    • Outdoor spaces can benefit the whole community. They can be a place to meet, to connect,to relax, to play and even to grow your own produce. This award commends those who create and maintain community gardens across Oldham.
  • Baskets/Containers/Balconies (Oldham East, Oldham West, Oldham and the Rest)
    • Outdoor space doesn’t have to be big to look beautiful or be practical. This award is for people who have used smaller spaces to maximum effect.
