Bloom and bling

In Bloom 2 ps brWe like a bit of bling on our blog and who better to provide it than Brighton & Hove’s Mayor, Bill Randall, who has visited our garden in full bling on several occasions.

On Monday 22nd April, we met up with him again at the launch of City in Bloom. Now independent of the Council, Brighton & Hove City in Bloom will be preparing to participate in the RHS ‘In Bloom’ competition in 2014 and for 2013, is launching a number of local competitions and encouraging local groups to get involved in the RHS’ ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ scheme.

At Monday’s launch, the lovely new logo, CITY IN BLOOM  2013 LAUNCHdesigned by a visiting Colombian student, was unveiled. The Evening Argus was on hand to capture the moment, with Bill and his bling slightly upstaged by the blooms.

There are some great ideas for blooming up neighbourhoods on the City in Bloom website: planting around trees (yeah!) and planting up some colourful planters to enliven areas. Our Preston Circus planters project is warming up now and we hope to be out there at the weekend, realising the colourful planting schemes we planned back in cold, grey March.Brighton in Bloom
