Entering Britain in Bloom is a year-round project. All those involved, from professional grounds staff to volunteers will have invested hundreds of hours into planning, planting and promoting their entry, but all that effort can go to waste if the judging visit isn’t well-planned and executed.
The month of May marks a very busy time in the diaries of many Britain in Bloom groups as preparation for judges’ visits in July gets underway. Furthermore, with the weather getting milder, floral displays across the UK’s villages, towns and cities are about to burst into bloom.
Hanging baskets are one of the staples of great floral displays in public spaces as well as along frontages and in gardens. They add differing levels of height and depth to floral displays and look great sited along the length of a street or in a town square. However, traditional hanging baskets can be high maintenance, requiring frequent watering, particularly during the drier months, which is why Amberol’s range of self-watering hanging baskets is so popular amongst councils, landscape gardeners and Britain in Bloom groups.
