About Britain in Bloom and the RHS

Organised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), Britain in Bloom is one of Europe’s largest horticultural campaigns, involving over a thousand communities each year and creating lasting improvements to local environments for the benefit of residents, workers and visitors.

Throughout the last five decades Britain in Bloom has been part of the UK’s cultural and horticultural landscape, inspiring millions of people. The campaign involves up to 300,000 volunteers across the UK, who donate 10.9 million hours to projects that benefit the wider community.

The RHS became the organising body for Britain in Bloom in 2001. The charity, along with the 16 “in Bloom” Regions and Nations, has introduced a number of developments. One of these was the launch of the Champion of Champions category in 2006, which recognises sustained high achievers at the UK finals level.

The RHS also introduced the It’s Your Neighbourhood (IYN) scheme in 2006, which today has more than 1,600 groups signed up. The scheme is non-competitive and free to enter and supports small volunteer-led community groups interested in ‘greening up’ their local area. Many IYN groups go on to become involved in the wider Bloom campaign and we recommend that Bloom groups support their local IYN groups as much as possible.

The ongoing popularity of Britain in Bloom can be understood through the real and lasting benefits that the campaign provides. Research shows that participants see not only cleaner and greener environments, but also reductions in crime and anti-social behaviour, renewed economic activity and increased pride of place.

In tough economic times, the campaign is well placed to support communities, providing an invaluable source of ideas and inspiration for thousands of volunteers across the UK. Participating communities use their campaigns to add value to existing activities, to attract additional funds to their area and improve quality of life in towns, cities and villages.



About The Royal Horticultural Society

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is the UK’s leading gardening charity, dedicated to advancing horticulture and promoting gardening. They believe that gardening enriches people’s lives and they work to enhance understanding and appreciation of plants, and provide contact with the natural environment.

Well-designed, planned, managed and maintained horticulture in public spaces is a vital component of healthy, sustainable communities and the creation of long-term environmental improvements.

They aim to inform, educate and inspire those working in parks and public spaces, gardeners of all levels and aspiring gardeners by:

Developing skills – The RHS is dedicated to providing horticultural education for professional and amateur gardeners through a range of respected horticultural qualifications, the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and educational outreach programmes.

Sharing horticultural expertise – The RHS provides practical and reliable advice and information, supported by investigative science, to meet the needs and expectations of gardeners now and in the future. They develop ideas on best horticultural practice and run a productive research agenda, often with partners, with practical benefits for gardeners of varying levels of experience and interest.

RHS Plant Trials and the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) provide an assessment of the garden worthiness of plants, while the online RHS Plant Selector recommends suitable growing conditions and highlights plant availability.

Supporting community gardening initiatives – With affiliation of gardening clubs, plant societies and allotment holders across the UK and the Campaign for School Gardening, which now involves over 15,000 schools, the RHS actively encourages community gardening in public spaces.

As stewards of the Britain in Bloom and It’s Your Neighbourhood campaigns, the RHS is pleased to support the revitalisation and renewal of villages, towns and cities through community gardening.
