Warwick in Bloom

Warwick in Bloom 2024 competition is now open! 

We’re excited to confirm the Warwick in Bloom 2024 competition is now open!

The 2024 competition features 11 competitive categories and includes categories for shops, commercial premises, pubs and B&Bs, and schools, in addition to the familiar gardens, window boxes, hanging baskets and community planting categories.

This year, we have launched a new ‘Wildlife Friendly category.’ Working with Bee Friendly Warwick, we’re aiming to raise awareness of the importance of having a pollinator plant and wildlife friendly garden.
