My son Dean has special needs and he loves growing vegetables in the garden, which he will enter in the Autumn Show in September."

"Whether you have a small windowsill that can be revamped with a potted plant, or you're working on a bigger gardening project in the community, we'd like to encourage each and every resident to join in the fun - and get growing for Hillingdon!"

All applications for Hillingdon in Bloom must be submitted by Saturday 30 June. The winners will be announced at the Autumn Show on Saturday 15 September at the Great Barn, Ruislip.
