In Bloom Winners List 2017

A- | A+

This year Coolings were proud supporters of local In Bloom competitions. In each case we have partnered with the Local Authorities or other organisations to administer, judge and provide rewards for the competitions.

Coolings have been avid supporters of this popular community gardening competition since the 1970s and is just one of the many ways we support our local area, engage with local residents and share the joy of gardening.
