Coolings In Bloom 2016

A- | A+

What is In Bloom? 

In Bloom is a community gardening competition designed to help transform areas ranging from small villages to large towns, into better places to live. Plants and flowers can add a great deal of pleasure to our lives and this competition is designed to encourage people to grow plants and care for their personal space and surrounding areas. Hopefully gardeners of all abilities will be tempted to enter and discover the pleasure of cultivating something beautiful.

Coolings is supporting local In Bloom competitions within Bromley, Edenbridge, Sevenoaks District, Sevenoaks Town, Swanley and Royal Tunbridge Wells. In each case we have partnered with the Local Authorities and other organisations to administer, judge and provide rewards for the competitions.

Some villages and towns such as Eynsford, Sevenoaks Town and Tunbridge Wells will then apply to enter the wider competition of South East in Bloom. This is part of the overall RHS Britain in Bloom competition, giving the opportunity to compete against other entries in the region, with the best regional winners potentially being invited to compete at national level!

Taking part

Entry to your local competition is not only FREE, on receipt of your entry we’ll even send you a £5 voucher to spend at Coolings to help get you started!

You don’t need to be an experienced gardener and the feedback from judges is only ever constructive. Anyone can garden and this is just a little fun so have a go, you might just win something!
