2018 Condos in Bloom
Our second annual Condos in Bloom competition was held over the summer to recognize the gardening efforts of both condominium complexes and individual units. The contest was open to all condominium owners and corporations in the Greater Edmonton area and we received double the amount of entries compared to our inaugural year. The quality of the gardens along with the variety of flora and creativity of design was most impressive!
Learning from last year we moved up the judging a month earlier to be able to view the gardens closer to their prime. Even with that advantage, the extreme summer heat created a challenge for the gardeners to keep their prized possessions looking pristine. Each entry was judged on three criteria – Visual Impact, Design and Creativity, and Maintenance. Our three volunteer judges spent a full day being chauffeured from one entry to the next and tabulated their own scores before reviewing all entries and determining the winners. Special Thanks to Sandi Danielson, Sharon Kilbride and Cathy Whyte for their time and insight to judge this year’s entries.
We want to thank all of the individuals who took the time to nominate entries and of course to all of our participants whose dedication to their craft plays a role in brightening up their community. The winners for the best individual unit and condo complex will be recognized at our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, October 2nd.
