Bournemouth Council

Bournemouth in Bloom

We’ve been taking part in Britain in Bloom for over 30 years

Britain in Bloom is a national contest run by the Royal Horticultural Society.  The regional competitions encourage people to make their local area greener and more beautiful.

From hanging flower baskets to planting your garden, if you feel like getting growing why not join the fun and enter one of the Bournemouth in Bloom categories?

There are lots of volunteering opportunities available for you to help us keep Bournemouth beautiful. 

If you would like to volunteer to get involved in the next Bournemouth in Bloom contest, get in touch or visit our Volunteering page for more information about other volunteering opportunities.

Get gardening

From hanging flower baskets to planting your garden, if you feel like getting growing why not join the fun and enter one of the Bournemouth in Bloom categories? 

You can join in the fun and volunteer to help make Bournemouth’s entry into the next Britain in Bloom a success.

Parks gardens and countryside

We work with lots of different groups and organisations to keep our green spaces, parks and gardens looking beautiful.  As well as looking after the plants and trees we also have volunteers who help us care for our grazing animals.

Neighbourhood clean-ups

It’s not just the green spaces that we want to look nice, we want our streets and urban areas to benefit too.  Join in with the environmental clean-up days to help make Bournemouth a cleaner, greener place to live.

Community growing

Slades Farm Community Garden is an exciting volunteer-led project to grow organic and sustainable food.  The garden includes herbs and plants to attract insects and there is a small meadow area with a pond, so it is as good for wildlife as it is for people.

The garden hosts working parties for Bournemouth residents and students and monthly Green Play sessions for under 5s.
