Natalie and Carl Knight of Livingstone Drive are the first entrants in this year’s Spalding in Bloom Best Front Garden Competition.

Spalding residents are being urged to enter the contest to find the town’s best front garden.

For the fourth year running this great competition is being run by Spalding In Bloom in conjunction with the Guardian and Lincolnshire Free Press.

And the contest is once again being sponsored by Birchgrove Garden Centre in Pinchbeck. They are putting up prizes of £50, £25 and £10 for the three best entrants.

The competition is easy to enter – just fill in the form below and send it with a picture of your front garden to the address shown. Or email us your picture to and include all the details asked for on the form – your name, address and telephone number. Entries must be with us by Monday, July 11.

The competition is open to Spalding residents only.

The 2015 winner was Terry Wing of Park Avenue. This year he will take part in The Frank Constable Best Front Garden Competition, organised by the East Midlands in Bloom Committee, and his garden will be judged in mid-July.

The rules are simple – the garden must be at the front of the house and visible from the path. It should be possible for judges to access the garden.

It MUST be in Spalding.

All entries must be on an entry form or email and be accompanied by a photograph.

Judges will be visiting all the entries between July 18 and July 25 (entrants need not be at home).

The winners will be announced on Thursday, August 4.

The winner will receive the Spalding in Bloom Best Front Garden trophy. Presentation of the trophy and prize vouchers will be at Birchgrove Garden Centre on Saturday, September 3.
