Now in to its fourth year, Hook in Bloom is a volunteer led gardening initiative in Hook, Hampshire. Working with the Parish, District and County councils, we encourage villagers to help us to make Hook a brighter and more colourful place to live, work, visit and play.

In Bloom has three main areas of activity:

  1. A residents and businesses In Bloom competition with 5 entry categories in 2019
  2. A traditional Flower and Produce Show on Sunday 8th September 2019 – click here to find out more and for an entry form
  3. In Bloom planting schemes to cheer up the centre of the village, identified areas around the village and approaches to Hook

The project is supported by the Parish Council, Hart District Council, Hampshire County Council, Hook Village Halls Charitable Association, Hook Allotments Association, a grant from Tesco’s #BagsofHelp scheme, sponsorship from Hortus Loci Plant Centre, and prizes sponsored by Tesco, Hortus Loci Plant Centre and de Jager bulbs.

Everyone should benefit from In Bloom. From the child who proudly displays their prize won in an In Bloom competition, to the person who wins the best front garden, to the large business who doesn’t mind its international investor visiting Hook because they are proud of the area where their business is located. The In Bloom volunteers are always looking for more people to help so if you would like to get involved please email info@hookinbloom.org Once Hook has gained experience in running the various elements of ‘In Bloom’ then the ultimate aim is to go for a regional Britain in Bloom award.
