Wight In Bloom returns for 2024 and entries must be in by May 31.

Wight in Bloom celebrates the work of green-fingered Islanders, regardless of the size of outdoor space they tend to.

From small front gardens to businesses with a floral feature, and from community displays to care home retreats, there is a category for you.

New for this year is the Best Climate Resilient Garden category, for gardens and green spaces that conserve or restore our natural landscapes and wildlife, or are inspired by the Island’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status in their creative practice.

A suggested (although it's not compulsory) theme is the 200th anniversary of the RNLI and ideas could include incorporating the lifesaving charity's colours, water features or planters shaped like lifeboats.

Entries close on May 31, while judging takes place between June 4 and June 25.

The criteria are overall impression, design and layout, innovation, sustainability and horticultural practice.

An awards ceremony will be held at Albert Cottage Hotel in East Cowes, hosted by the
Island’s High Sheriff, Graham Biss, on Thursday, July 18.
