The competition announcement comes as more blooming baskets, flowering tubs, and planting installations have been placed in the town.

Councillor Linda Butler, deputy chair of Community & Culture at Warwick Town Council said:

“This year, Warwick Town Council and the Warwick in Bloom team have arranged for the town to be more plentiful in petals than ever before. We have installed more than 285 baskets in addition to some 60 tubs and planters thanks to the support of Warwick residents and businesses. With a royal theme of red, white, and blue planting, the baskets and planters were all installed ahead of the Platinum Jubilee and, alongside all the bunting displays, helped to make the town look resplendent for the celebratory weekend.”

Councillor Richard Eddy, chair of Community & Culture at Warwick Town Council said:

“After a bumper crop of award-winning entries in 2021, it’s great to welcome residents and businesses to showcase their planting prowess in the Warwick in Bloom competition for 2022. We welcome entries from everyone, whether they be first-time planters or horticultural experts. This is a competition that celebrates green spaces and the transformations that Warwick people make to them. We look forward to celebrating with this year’s winners at the annual prize giving party in the autumn.”

Get planting, get growing and happy blooming – we’ll share the winners with you later in the year.
