Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) is calling on its green-fingered tenants to enter this year’s best garden contest.

The annual Garden in Bloom competition rewards the best entries in various categories allowing tenants to show off their skills no matter how large or small their gardens are.

‘So many of our tenants love spending time tending to their plants, lawns and outside spaces,’ said Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s chief executive, ‘and we can see they take great pride in their gardens.

‘This is our chance to recognise and reward their hard work.

‘We have a very high standard of entries every year and we are sure that this year’s will be better than ever.’

Those interested in taking part can contact their local offices or download an entry form from the housing association’s website at

‘Once we have your entry form, we will send someone to take photographs of your garden and there are the usual prizes of vouchers and trophies to be won,’ said an ACHA spokesperson.

‘You can find details and previous winners on our website by searching Garden in Bloom.

‘Good luck!’

The closing date for entries for all areas is July 30.
