For extra keen gardeners it’s time to start planning for the Fulham Front Garden Competition

The categories are

  • Best Front Garden
  • Best Planter or Planters
  • Special category – this year was best hedge

Judging takes place in early July so that the winners and runners up are invited to the Fulham Society summer party when the prizes are awarded

Fulham was once known for it’s very fertile soil where market gardens and fruit trees thrived.

Our green spaces are a little more limited these days and with the spread of basement light wells and hard standing for vehicles  Fulham Society wants  to celebrate and encourage the tending of the beautiful green and colourful spaces that brighten up our public realm . We are also interested to see how, with imagination, an interesting front garden can be created at the same time as providing space for a car or a lightwell.

You don’t have to have a garden – there are  prize for planters, tubs or window boxes and hedges ! They do need to be visible from the road so that the judges can visit.

You do not need to be a Fulham Society member to enter .  It doesn’t cost anything to enter so look out for the information for the 202o competition to celebrate Fulham Society’s 50th year . Judging will take  place during June. Winners will be announced at the Fulham Society Garden party  in July 2020

We are looking for  a well designed , well executed space that gives pleasure to all who pass by and ideally has an impact all through the year
