In Bloom

The In Bloom federation of East Staffordshire is a collective group whose members comprise of Technical officers from East Staffordshire Borough Council’s Horticultural and Grounds maintenance departments as well as members of local community groups and parish councils.

The aim of the group is to develop strategies and support entries into the regional Heart of England in bloom campaign from across the Borough. This year the group has successfully made four entries: Burton, Uttoxeter, Tutbury and Winshill in bloom. All four entries received the coveted Gold award!

ESBC’s Greenhouse centre supports the group by offering free plants for community gardening projects as well as expert horticultural advice and support. The aim of the federation is to encourage more local groups to become involved in community gardening projects which will greatly enhance the beauty and environmental quality of the borough.
