Just in case you missed the announcement last month on social media, the winners of Amberol’s 2019 photo competition have been unveiled.
As ever, the standard was very high, and it is always such a pleasure to see so many wonderful displays using Amberol’s range of self-watering planters. From hanging baskets, to barrier baskets to large tiered containers, we never cease to be impressed by the beautiful blooms bursting forth and captured on film for all to see.
“When our self-watering planters leave the factory, we know that they will be transformed by our green-fingered customers, but it is a real treat to see them all planted up and brightening up their surroundings,” comments Amberol’s MD, Patience Atkinson-Gregory. “I’m just glad that I don’t have to judge the entries!”
Entries came from far and wide: Britain in Bloom groups, individuals, local authorities and also from customers abroad. With so many great photos, selecting the final winners was a tough choice and while not unanimous, the Eurovision-style judging system of awarding points ensured that there were three clear winners.
2nd place went to Nick Fletcher of Malton In Bloom
3rd place went to Sarah Warmsley from Altrincham in Bloom

Together, we are facing a truly unparalleled situation. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, I wanted to reach out and update you on how we’re approaching the situation at Amberol.
After a wet and rather grey winter, spring is finally here. As the days lengthen and get warmer (and hopefully drier), people emerge from spending much of their time indoors, eager to get out and about after the long period of winter-induced hibernation.
Britain in Bloom is all about community. Despite the fact that it is a competition, the individuals and groups who take part are mutually supportive, sharing the common goal of making their environment better, cleaner, brighter, more beautiful.
