The winners of the 33rd edition of the Fleurir Deux-Montagnes competition are now known! Over the past few days, the mayor and councilors from each of the districts hand-delivered local nursery gift certificates to the 17 winners. At the same time, they were able to observe the splendor of the flowery gardens which earned them a place in the prize list.
New registration system
Because of the pandemic, this year the competition adopted an “on registration” formula, unlike previous years when all residences were automatically registered. Citizens had until June 15 to register their flowered achievements. To the relief of the Mayor’s Office and the Public Works Department, the event aroused considerable enthusiasm despite its modified format.
Evaluation of registered projects
During the summer, the City’s team of horticulture experts went to the addresses registered in order to evaluate the projects. They based their judgment on: diversity and originality, respect for the environment, integration of infrastructures, the overall visual effect and the enhancement of plants. Following the evaluation of the flowerbeds, a total of 17 projects stood out across the districts including special prizes for the environmental effort, the most beautiful flowered balcony as well as the favorite of the team of horticulturalists. It should be noted that the number of laureates in each district depends on the number of registrations received.
“It is with great pleasure that I observe the efforts of horticultural beautification on the part of residents across our city. Fleurir Deux-Montagnes is an excellent opportunity to highlight the creativity of gardening enthusiasts and the environmental benefits that flow from their achievements, ”said Mayor Denis Martin.
