Edmonds in Bloom has decided to make a major change to its annual Garden Competition, which is now officially the Garden and Business Recognition program.

In previous years, homeowners and businesses entered into the competition. All entrants received an Edmonds in Bloom flag, and an awards reception was held in August.

Now, instead, teams of volunteers will stroll through Edmonds neighborhoods in June, talk with homeowners and businesses, and place Edmonds in Bloom flags in yards and displays. The goal is to place 100 flags.

“Residents and visitors frequently comment on the floral abundance in our neighborhoods and business areas,” Edmonds in Bloom President Kathy Ludgate said. “This new format will replace the garden competition enable us to recognize and honor more gardeners for their efforts and talents.

“We thank entrants from previous years and look forward to celebrating even more businesses and front yard gardens this year under our new recognition system. We encourage residents to look for the bright flamingo pink Edmonds in Bloom flags this summer.”

Information on volunteering with Edmonds in Bloom and dates for upcoming events is also on the website.
