Here we GROW again, Pickering Blooms is back this summer!

A true celebration of gardening and gardeners, the Pickering Blooms Programs invites gardeners of all levels to showcase their horticultural accomplishments in a friendly virtual competition.  

Garden Showcase You have a wonderful garden and you would like to show your community pride. Participants will receive a Pickering Blooms Garden Showcase sign to display proudly in their front garden.

Garden of Distinction Contest You have a garden you’re proud of with beautiful plants, landscaping, garden art or sustainable features. You would like to enter a community contest where Pickering residents can vote on their favourite images of gardens from around Pickering. Participants have the chance to win fantastic prizes, and be recognized as a Pickering Garden of Distinction.
