Project Description

Britain in Bloom with The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is back after a two year hiatus, and this year you can be part of it with Royal Newark in Bloom. This is your chance to show off your gardening skills and help make Newark bloomin’ marvellous this summer.

There are many categories that people can enter ranging from best front garden to the best allotment site, best hotel or pub to the best school garden. And there are special awards for young people, best wildflower and conservation areas and least littered town.

Competition categories

  1. Best residential garden (gardens must be clearly visible to the public from a public road or footpath)
  2. Best Pub/Hotel garden or display (judges are looking for permanent and original displays)
  3. Best school garden (this encourages children to learn gardening skills and connect with nature. Sub categories include best fruit and vegetable gardening, best gardening for wildlife and best ornamental gardening)

You can find out more by visiting East Midlands in Bloom and join the conversation on the Newark in Bloom Facebook group.

RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood

Are you a group of people who are keen to improve your local surroundings, whether a street or part of one, a community garden or small green space?

The RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood is a way to get practical advice and recognition for your efforts.

There are five levels of achievement from the entry level of establishing the garden to ‘outstanding’.

You will receive a visit from ‘In Bloom’ experts who will provide valuable feedback and helpful advice of how to encourage local involvement and continually develop the space.

The core elements are

  • Community participation
  • Environmental responsibility
  • Gardening achievement
