Our vision is to transform communities: with stunning floral displays that beautify and attract; with bins that help keep Britain tidy and the environment safe; and with seating to encourage people to pause and enjoy!
With the use of Amberol’s special Self-watering System our watering crews now manage with just two visits per week to water planters during the summer. This would compare to daily visits when we had traditional baskets.Read our case studies
Britain in Bloom is about far more than making the UK’s towns and villages look pretty in the summer months. As we know, beautiful floral displays don’t just magically appear; they involve year-round hard work and determination behind the scenes.
The day the Britain in Bloom judges arrive is the culmination of months of hard work. So whether you’re a small village-based volunteer team or a large local authority-backed task force, it’s understandable to feel nervous about the big day. However it’s important to remember that no matter what award you eventually receive, this should be a day of enjoyment and celebration. And as with any important day, when it comes to taking the stress out of it, preparation is key.
One of our favourite episodes of BBC2’s recent Britain in Bloom series involved presenter Chris Pavin following the team behind Shrewsbury’s successful 2017 bid to win its customary Gold Award in the ‘small city’ category. At Amberol we are lucky to work with Shrewsbury in Bloom every year by supplying our self-watering planters for the team to create their stunning floral displays in.
Be inventive – plants will grow in almost anything. Sinks, baths, even wellington boots can make quirky containers - although they may not provide ideal growing conditions.
