During the judging, entrants were assessed on their design, quality of horticultural features, floral displays and standards of maintenance.
Lord Provost Barney Crockett presented the awards to winners from each of the nine categories, decided after three weeks of judging between July 15 and August 2.
The Lord Provost said: “Well done not only to the winners but all the entrants as they play a huge part in making our city green and beautiful.
“We all can make a difference as individuals, schools, community groups or businesses to help with our city’s enviable reputation for excelling in Scottish and UK-wide bloom competitions over the decades.
“The winners all have blooming outstanding gardens and green areas and I congratulate them on their success.”
Some categories were also judged on their sustainable and biodiversity initiatives to conserve energy and encourage wildlife.
This year’s winners included Clan House and Airyhall School.
In the Schools Potato Competition category, Bramble Brae came out in top in the “greatest weight of crop” section, with Airyhall School scooping the “most attractive and unusual container” award.
Categories 1-3 cover garden displays which “add colour and interest to the street and surrounding area”.
