Amberol’s ‘Inspiring Plant-Ups’ – winners announced

Amberol’s ‘Inspiring Plant-Ups’ – winners announced

2019 was an exciting date for Amberol as it was the year that we celebrated 50 years in business. To commemorate that wonderful milestone, we wanted to look for a way of thanking our customers for their support, as well as sharing some of the amazing results that customers have produced using Amberol’s products.

So, we asked people for entries into our ‘Inspired Plant-Ups’ guide which will be available free to customers, The aim of the guide is to share advice, handy tips and some of the beautiful displays that our customers have created. As a thank you for taking part, we offered prizes of Amberol products. The standard of entries was very high, so it took our judges a while to deliberate, but we are delighted to now announce the following winners:

  • First Prize - £1000 of Amberol rotationally moulded product goes to Alan Wheeldon of Wisbech in Bloom
  • Second Prize - £500 of Amberol rotationally moulded product goes to Ian Haynes of Leighton Linslade in Bloom.
  • Third Prize - £250 of Amberol rotationally moulded product goes to Nick Fletcher of Malton in Bloom.

Britain in Bloom at its best

“We’d like to congratulate all our winners,” comments Amberol’s MD, Patience Atkinson-Gregory. “The entries demonstrated just how inventive and talented so many of the In Bloom community are and how these displays can transform their environment. This massive army of volunteers has so much experience and knowledge to share – and are always so generous in supporting each other. I’d also like to thank everyone who took the time to enter. We really enjoyed looking at the different displays and all the entries will be included in our free ‘Inspired Plant-Ups’ guide due to be published shortly.”

The Inspired Plant-Ups guide is in the final stages of design and will be available to download soon. Follow our newsletters and social media for any forthcoming information.

Saving water in a crisis

As summer approaches and the weather gets warmer (hopefully), the facility of Amberol’s self-watering planters to help conserve water really comes into its own. This is particularly true in the current crisis when people are required to minimise any form of activity outside the home.

We love to hear about the way that people use our products. Whether you are a school, leisure centre or council using litter bins from our range of indoor and outdoor litter bins to keep your environment clean and tidy, or a Britain In Bloom group creating wonderful displays using Amberol’s self-watering planters, it’s always good to see and hear our products in action.
