Welcome to the Heart of England in Bloom
Heart of England in Bloom's (one of the 17 Britain in Bloom UK regions/nations) campaigns are transforming communities in the region, making them greener, cleaner and instilling a sense of local pride.
How to enter
The RHS Theme:
The campaign will be called Greening Grey Britain and will run for three years, during which time we’ll be aiming to support groups to transform a total of 9,000 unloved (grey) spaces into great green spaces for people and wildlife. To help groups do this we will be offering advice, tips and resources (and free nasturtium seeds for groups in the first year). Obviously this is something that many groups already do, so we’re aiming for the campaign to support their achievements, encourage people to consider new projects and inspire others to get involved.
Gardening Tip - Bespoke Pumpkins
Now is the time to make the children and grandchildren their very own bespoke Halloween Pumpkin.
As the fruit reaches the size of a grapefruit simply scratch through the skin.
Quickly the wound will callous over and will grow expotentially with the size of the fruit, easy!
