In villages, towns and cities up and down the country, the business and residential competitions that support In Bloom initiatives are a lot of fun and can become extremely competitive, especially when you have several pubs and restaurants competing for the top accolade!
For Hook in Bloom five categories of entry have been identified for 2018:
Best Front Garden, Best Hanging Basket, Best Business Frontage, Best Pub or Hotel and Best Allotment. Once the school has recovered from its building works we will hopefully then have other youth categories to enter. In the meantime children can enter categories in the annual flower and produce show.
In addition to the much coveted trophies, Tesco are sponsoring two categories with £25 vouchers and de Jager bulbs, who celebrate their 150th birthday this year, are sponsoring three categories with £25 vouchers. Thank you to both companies for their generosity and support.
Hook in Bloom entry forms will be delivered to every household in late Spring but you can also download an entry form by clicking here.
