Edmonds in Bloom is encouraging gardeners to enter the annual Garden Competition. Pick up the 2015 entry forms at the Frances Anderson Center, Garden Gear or the Log Cabin in Edmonds. Or enter online at www.edmondsinbloom.com.
Gardeners in ZIP codes 98020 and 98026 are eligible. The gardens must be visible from the street or alley. Single-family homes, apartments, townhouses — all are welcome. There is also a newer category for those who have fruit and veggies in their front garden. Businesses may enter the Business Recognition category. All entrants will receive the 2015 Edmonds in Bloom flag.
The deadline for entrants is July 3. Gardens will be judged between July 9-16. All entrants will be invited to an awards reception on Aug. 5 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.
Just a note: the Garden Competition is not connected to the Garden Tour, which is July 19.
