Small steps that make a big difference
The RHS Britain in Bloom campaign is a year-round initiative, which sees communities the length and breadth of the UK working to improve their local environments.
Communities of all sizes take part, from small villages to large cities. Some groups are entirely voluntarily run and some work in partnership with their local council.
Participants are assessed for efforts in three key areas:
- Horticultural achievement
- Community participation
- Environmental responsibility
There are two levels to the campaign:
At a region/nation level, communities are assessed by one of 18 region/nation 'in Bloom' bodies.
From the 1,100 communities that take part in these regional competitions every year, roughly 70 are selected to go into the annual UK Finals - RHS Britain in Bloom.
