Steyning in Bloom: Best Front Gardens


Congratulations to the gardeners of Steyning, who have had to contend with all manner of problems... the early months of continuous rain, then the heat and the lockdown, and garden centres and sources for plants closed. These strange times have brought their fair share of distress, anxiety and frustrations, but also unexpected surprises – time to enjoy the garden, to get to know our area better and to appreciate the patterns of nature.

There have been some wonderful front gardens, giving joy to those around, and to those making their daily escape from enforced isolation. Our team of judges (socially isolated of course!) have been walking round different areas of Steyning during the months of June and July. We have been looking for interesting form and structure, clever planting, continuation of display and, of course, the Wow factor!

So many people have made a huge effort and given us all a great deal of pleasure and the Winners are:
