The lucky winners of Amberol’s half-barrel are announced

Autumn is certainly a busy time for Britain in Bloom groups, councils and judges all over the country with the build up to the regional and national RHS Britain in Bloom awards.

At Amberol we have been delighted to support and work with many competition entrants over the years, from small community groups to large council-led operations. We are often in awe of the dedication and enthusiasm that we see – and the end results that we all enjoy. So we like to give a little something back.

At each regional Britain In Bloom awards event, there is a prize draw for an Amberol Half Barrel planter. Our self-watering barrel planters are one of our most popular products. They look just like they are made from wood to create an authentic heritage look, but have the durability of recyclable polyethylene

We’d like to congratulate our winners and hope that they are creating something beautiful with their new self-watering planter. Well done to:

  • East Midlands in Bloom - Immingham in Bloom.
  • Beautiful Scotland awards – Melrose in Bloom
  • South West - Ilfracombe in Bloom
  • Anglia in Bloom - Derek Cole, Brambles
  • Heart of England - Adcocks Geen Village in Bloom
  • Wales - Colwyn in Bloom
  • Northwest in Bloom - Heywood in Bloom, Altrincham in Bloom and Wire in Bloom

No doubt many of you are already making plans for 2017 so the best of luck from all of us here at Amberol.
