All Hounslow Homes residents have a chance to share in more than £600 of prizes thanks to our annual 'Budding Blooms' competition. Over the summer, entrants can send in photos of their gardens to enter one of the four categories. Judging takes place in August and the winner announced at a glittering awards ceremony at Twickenham Stadium on 10 September 2010.

Tenant Participation Officer and long time judge Eileen Gladwell said: 'The involvement of residents has been fantastic in our annual 'Budding Blooms' competition. Last years winners put a lot of effort into each of the categories and the competition results were very close.
