BHT’s Annual Sussex in Bloom Gardening Competition, sponsored by BHT’s gardening contractors Southern Land Services, saw clients and tenants across BHT transform their individual and communal gardens.

In Brighton residents of Shore House won a £30 voucher as first prize for shared housing projects, transforming a bare and unused patio into a colourful meeting space.

In St Leonards-on-Sea residents won a £30 garden voucher, first prize for turning the path down the side of their large Victorian House into a glorious garden, giving them and their neighbours a great deal of pleasure.

The runner-up’s won £10 vouchers and included residents from the Move On project, clearing the garden, cutting the hedges, liberating overgrown plants and creating a small flower and vegetable garden. Residents of Sackville Gardens worked with staff to produce a wild flower patch and an Insect Hotel.

Residents at the Recovery Project transformed their large courtyard garden and a resident of the Causeway Brighton created a beautiful haven of flowers up his steps. In St Leonards-on-Sea a resident dug out the back garden of their house, restoring and painting the back fence and buying plants, lights and bird feeders.

The garden’s really nice now.  It was such a fun project to be involved with and it was great to be able to choose what plants we wanted
