The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Communities in Bloom Committee is proud to present the first virtual adaptation of its popular Garden of the Week Contest.

The submission period has officially opened! Niagara-on-the-Lake residents can now submit photos of their gardens or garden features for consideration in any of the 10 available categories below. Simply click "Add your idea" in the category or categories you would like to enter, upload your photo and type in a title and description, then press "Add Idea" to complete your submission


Submissions will be accepted over a ten (10) week nomination period, following which, the Communities in Bloom Committee will narrow down each category to the top three (3) submissions (rather than a winning garden being announced every week, as in previous years). The public will be invited to vote on the shortlisted selections on this project page in order to determine the final winner in each category.

In addition to the online garden submissions, garden enthusiasts can look forward to weekly gardening tips, posted to the Town’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and linked on this page, plus ten (10) weekly gardening columns in the Lake Report, Niagara-on-the-Lake Advance, and Niagara-on-the-Lake Local newspapers.

Good luck and happy growing!

(Please only submit photos of relevant gardens or garden features located on your property.)

NOTE TO ALL PARTICIPANTS: By contributing your photo(s) to this contest, you are giving the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake permission to use your photo(s) for online and print publications. If you do not wish to give the Town permission to use your photo(s), please contact beth.audet@notl.com.
