To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we are producing a free Recipes for Success guide with advice, tips and photos from our talented customers. But we need your help.
After 50 years of working with councils, businesses, schools, charities and of course, Britain in Bloom, we wanted to give something back to the people and organisations who have supported us since we have been in business. The Recipes for Success guide, which will be available for free on request, is our way of thanking everyone for that support - and of helping people to keep Britain looking beautiful.
Britain in Bloom is all about community; sharing ideas and supporting each other. In that spirit, we are asking people to send in examples of their favourite plant-ups in an Amberol self-watering container to us so we can include them in the Recipes for Success guide.
To thank you for taking the time to send in your suggestions, you could be eligible for some great prizes. The entry that is judged to be the best by an independent panel will win up to £1000 to spend on Amberol products. There will also be a second prize of £500 to spend on Amberol products and a third prize of £250 to spend.
If you are interested in being included in the Recipes for Success guide, your submission should include information about:
To be considered for inclusion in the guide, please email your recipes for success and images to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details. The closing date for entries is Monday 30th September with winners being announced in early October.
Once received, we will write up each suitable entry to create our Recipes for Success guide which will be a fantastic free resource for In Bloomers, horticulturalists and gardening enthusiasts everywhere.
Amberol’s MD Patience Atkinson-Gregory explains the idea behind the Recipes for Success guide. “At Amberol we aim to do our bit to help make a visible difference to our public places and spaces, but it is our customers who really put in the hard work,” she comments.
“Our self-watering planters may create the ideal growing conditions for beautiful displays and abundant edibles, but it is the time, commitment and imagination of gardening groups, Britain in Bloom groups, community organisations, councils and individuals that truly makes the difference. We felt that the Recipes for Success guide would both celebrate these achievements as well as helping each other by sharing ideas. I am excited to see what people will send in.”
Amberol has also produced free guides on excelling Britain in Bloom, successful container gardening and how to obtain sponsorship of Amberol products. These are available on request from Amberol.

Have you visited the Amberol website recently? If not, now would be a good time to take a fresh look as we are delighted to announce some changes. In fact, the whole website has had a bit of an exciting makeover to mark the start of a new decade.
With the Great British Spring Clean 2020 officially launched in January, momentum for the annual initiative is starting to build. This year’s event runs from 20th March to 13th April and the aim is to make the 2020 campaign even bigger and better. In 2019, over half a million volunteers were involved in everything from litter picks to individual litter pledges. This year the campaign’s target is to involve at least 600,000 people.
One of the many advantages of using containers for planting rather than traditional flower beds is the versatility that containers can offer. Planters can be relocated with relative ease to enhance a specific space or fit in with a particular theme, offering great potential for the imaginative Britain in Bloomer, horticulturalist or gardener.
