The annual weekly contest for the most beautiful gardens in Niagara-on-the-Lake will be in full bloom on June 1.

Nominations are being accepted for the Garden of the Week contest, which will run until Aug. 31. It is put on by the NOTL Horticultural Society in co-operation with Communities in Bloom.

The nomination deadline for each week is Monday evening and all nominees will carry on to following weeks for consideration.

Residents can nominate as many gardens as they like, as long as they meet the criteria.

The contest is open to all residents of NOTL with front gardens visible from the road. Each garden will be judged on streetscape and curb appeal, personal expression and creativity, colour and texture, and maintenance and neatness.

Winners will be announced on the town’s website and will receive a bottle of wine donated by Caroline Estate Winery and a gift certificate from Regal Florist and Garden Centre.

Submissions can be made through the town's JoinTheConversation page or by email to
