Belfast in Bloom

Make Belfast a city of flowers.

All you need is a garden, window sill or front door. Cheer up forgotten flower beds, arrange a simple window box, or take part in a larger regeneration project. 

2017 is set to be another exciting year for Belfast. We want to create a warm and friendly welcome to everyone who works, lives and visits here. 


Our Belfast in Bloom competition was open to individuals, groups and commercial premises. This year we have added best kept school garden with four individual categories awarded for schools in the north, south, east and west of the city. 

Belfast in Bloom 2017 competition is now closed. The competition will return again in Spring 2018
