Belfast in Bloom
2018 has been blossoming into an exciting year for Belfast, especially as we are also hosting Britain in Bloom in October. We have been creating a warm and friendly welcome to everyone who works, lives and visits here.
We have been making Belfast a city of flowers again. We have cheered up forgotten flower beds, window boxes and sills, gardens and front doors, as well as encouraging the participation in larger regeneration projects.
By taking part in our Belfast in Bloom campaign, our city's chances to be chosen for the Britain in Bloom competition increases.
Our Belfast in Bloom competition was open to individuals, groups, schools and commercial premises. Last year we added best kept school garden with four individual categories awarded for schools in the north, south, east and west of the city. Due to its success we continued this category again this year.
The closing date for entries to the schools category was 15 June 2018.
The closing date for all other categories was 20 July 2018.
Judging takes place during August 2018 and an awards ceremony is held in November 2018.
