CREATIVE gardeners were honoured for making Brent a blossoming borough.
Eighteen prizes were given out at the Brent in Bloom awards on Thursday last week, held at Greenhouse Garden Centre in Birchen Grove, Kingsbury.
Entries included hanging baskets and window boxes, as well as front and back gardens, which were each judged on design, colour, cleanliness and plant quality.
The Mayor of Brent, councillor Michael Adeyeye, presented the certificates and prizes, which included vouchers.
Councillor James Powney, lead member for environment and neighbourhood services at Brent Council, said: “I want to congratulate everybody who took part and especially the winners for making this another great year for Brent in Bloom. Gardening and food growing are blossoming at Brent at the moment with many creative and imaginative gardeners and growers in our schools and communities. They are contributing to making the borough a far more greener and cleaner place.”
