Blackpool in Bloom is an annual gardening competition. The aim is to put colour and civic pride into Blackpool for residents. And make it a prettier place for visitors too.
It’s formerly been known as Gorgeous Gardens, Hotel in Bloom and Beautiful Blackpool in Bloom. The competition is now simply ‘Blackpool in Bloom’.
About Blackpool in Bloom
Have you got a garden that’s blooming lovely, gorgeous window boxes at work, a business that blossoms, or live in a street that’s sensational? Then showcase your horticultural achievement for a chance to be crowned the winner.
It started over 20 years ago with Cllr Kath Rowson. The Friends of Stanley Park continued with Blackpool in Bloom until five years ago when Blackpool Federation of Allotments took it on.
It originally was to bring colour to the town and has since evolved into the nine groups of judging as it is now. Hopefully this captures the wide range of community, school, business and home life in the town.
The categories are:
- Small/medium gardens
- Large gardens
- Yard/container gardens
- Hanging baskets, private and commercial
- Accommodation providers
- Pub and tourist attractions
- Colleges and schools
- Theme display
