Get into the Bloom in Solihull

Solihull Council is calling on all green fingered residents to get involved with this year’s Solihull in Bloom.

Every year Solihull in Bloom works with a host of residents, businesses and community groups to make the borough look beautiful for the regional Heart of England in Bloom competition.

This year Solihull is hoping to get its seventh consecutive gold rating and be rated best city in the region.

The campaign is kicked off with a special launch event at Notcutts Garden Centre on the Stratford Road on Saturday 12 March, 11am-3pm.

Visitors will be able to make a bird feeder, decorate a Bloom badge, and get their face painted.

People will also be able to find out how they can enter their gardens, hanging baskets or business fronts in the annual Solihull Garden Competition, sponsored by the Solihull News and Notcutts Garden Centre.

This year’s theme ‘Conservation and Community’ aims to encourage as many residents and businesses as possible to get involved in making the borough beautiful and green, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive in.

Cabinet member for Environment, Councillor Tim Hodgson said: “Solihull in Bloom is a great way the Council, residents, local organisations and businesses can come together to make the borough beautiful for every one to enjoy.

“This year we want to encourage even more people to get involved either by entering the garden competition or participating in a community project. By working together we will hopefully once again shine at the regional competition.”
