One of Ashcroft’s best gardens

Feast your eyes on beautiful gardens

Ashcroft Commuities in Bloom announces award-winning gardens and vegetable gardens around town.

Ashcroft Communities in Bloom is proud to announce the 10 recipients of the 2015 Scott’s sponsored Best Garden Selection awards. The 10 properties selected were chosen based on the overall appearance of the property, neatness, aesthetic appeal, floral displays, and use of trees and shrubs. It is no easy task choosing these properties, as Ashcroft is known for its tidiness and well-tended yards.

The property owners will proudly display a sign on their property. They’ve also received  a congratulatory letter, and garden products, from Scott’s Miracle-Gro.

This year’s recipients are:

209 Cliff: Kathy Morris

709 Brink Lane: Lorna Delling

1440 Riverside: Ron and Hilda Jones

432 Ranch: Stan Aie and Pam Sidwell

1305 Western: Lettie Hansen

1311 Western: Betty Brown

806 Hill: Steve and Sylvia Gapp

1417 Pears Place: Fred Seher, Sr.

707 Elm: Marie Whiting

145 Barnes: Dwight and Barb Hodder

Communities in Bloom also chose to honour six local residents for their amazing vegetable gardens. We saw some very fine vegetable gardens, and are sure there are even more that we don`t know about. The owners were presented with a recognition for their gardens.

1413 Battel: Emily Monette

114 Barnes: Anne Marie McLean

212 Ash: Willy Aie

214 Ash: Oliviero Lepri

1417 Pears Place: Fred Seher, Sr.

37 Mesa Vista Court: Lorraine Schwaluk

Just a reminder to all Ashcroft residents and businesses that the judges for Communities in Bloom will be touring the village on July 24, and judging us on all the eight categories that comprise Communities in Bloom: Tidiness, Environmental Awareness, Community Involvement, Natural and Cultural Heritage Conservation, Urban Forest Management, Landscaped Areas, Floral Displays, and Turf and Groundcovers. Let’s do our best to wow them with everything we have here to be proud of.
