2021 Garden Competition Winners

Posted on Updated on

For the 39th year, Newport in Bloom honored those who plant and nurture flower gardens and flower containers at its 2021 Garden Competition Awards ceremony last night at the Newport Tennis Hall of Fame. 

A record 105 (!) entries from three designated City areas were received by Newport Bloom. In addition to the area awards, five other categories were honored: Large gardens, Family Development, Senior Development, Community and Small Business.

“We were amazed and delighted to receive so many entries this year,” said Newport in Bloom Chair Kiki McMahan. It’s indicative of not only everyone’s love of gardening but also a desire to beautify yards, neighborhoods and public spaces for the benefit of all.”

To see the winners and other entries, see our 2021 Garden Competition page.
