A merry Christmas from Amberol

A merry Christmas from Amberol

A busy year for Britain in Bloom 

This year we were happy to be busier than ever supplying hardworking Britain in Bloom groups across the UK with our range of self-watering planters to showcase their floral displays in. Most Britain in Bloom volunteers are used to dealing with excessive rain, wind and unseasonably cold weather in the annual run up to the all-important judges’ visit, but few have experienced a heatwave like the one we had in 2018. While the prolonged hot weather was a delight for many, it brought Britain in Bloom groups unprecedented new challenges. 

Luckily for the Britain in Bloom groups that Amberol supplies, our self-watering planters feature the unique Aquafeed™ system which includes a series of high capillary action wicks which ‘suck’ up water from a sub soil reservoir onto a dispersal mat which keeps the compost optimally moist at all times. 

Cause for celebration 

As always, we were very pleased to see many of the Britain in Bloom groups we work in partnership with find winning form both regionally and at the Britain in Bloom national awards which took place in Belfast in October. 

Amberol customer Truro triumphed in the Champion of Champion category and Aberdeen, Ballymena, Sidmouth, Usk and Newcastle-under-Lyme are other Amberol partners who won awards across the many different categories. 

Summer may be the busiest time for Britain in Bloom, however the teams work hard all year round to ensure their floral displays are ready to delight the public and the judges when summer arrives, so we look forward to working with our partners throughout 2019. 

Planning for 2019

Reducing litter: recycling and non-recycling bins for your public spaces

Litter is an ever-present problem for councils and local authorities as well as an eyesore for residents. Many local councils invest a significant portion of their budget in collecting litter as well as clearing up areas where litter s regularly dropped. Of course, prevention is better than cure, but there’s no easy or quick solution to the litter issue. It’s a matter of long-term planning and strategy, as well as educating people and providing the right facilities which make it easier for people to dispose of their litter responsibly.
