Our ‘Hints and Tips’ page is designed to assist you

and also give you general guidance on how to look after your display.
Our awards are allocated as follows:-
This is the highest level of award our St George in Bloom
judges allocate, and is equivalent to a ‘Gold’ standard.
This is the next level from Outstanding,
and although a high standard was evident when the judges looked
at the display this award acknowledges that improvements
could have been made.
Perhaps some of the plants needed some extra care & attention,
or the judges spotted weeds, or disease, or insect infestation on the plants .
Don’t forget the judges also look at the entire setting
in which the plants are displayed.
If there are also untidy areas surrounding the display,
or evidence of weeds, the judges will deduct points.
