A BICYCLE BUILT FOR . . . FLOWERS? is just one of the many delights in the garden at 507 Bancroft in Ashcroft

Beautiful gardens to admire and inspire

Ten Ashcroft gardens on display in Scotts Miracle-Gro Best Garden Best Garden Selection Awards.

This year, Ashcroft Communities in Bloom was one of the lucky communities chosen to participate in the Scotts Miracle-Gro Best Garden Selection Awards. The program began last year as a pilot, and was so successful and received so many accolades Scotts ran it again.

All participants in the Communities in Bloom program were able to apply to Scotts for a chance to participate in the program. We were delighted when we were notified that we had been selected.

Our local Communities in Bloom committee has toured throughout Ashcroft and has selected a number of residences to receive the award based on the curb appeal and quality of the gardens. Each recipient will receive a congratulatory letter and gift from Scotts Miracle-Gro, and a lovely sign to display in front of their home. The winners will display the sign for three weeks, and then the sign will be moved to another deserving property.

For the period of July 7 – 27 the winners are:

1392 Government Street: Berdan

1403 Pine Street: Owens

210 Ash Street: Platz

611 Cedar Crescent : Webster

570 Mesa Vista Drive: Denis

286 Cliff Crescent: Flaherty

203 Cornwall Place: Thille

503 Bancroft Street: Holgate

507 Bancroft Street: Reid

1230 Vista Heights Drive: K. Adamski

Take a drive around your village, and see for yourself the pride taken in these yards.
