Welcome to Pub in Bloom!

Boston in Bloom have been looking for public houses within the Borough of Boston interested in participating in the new “Pub in Bloom” competition. Judges travelled around the town looking at venues, keep to spot a well balanced design, good use of colour and quality planting.

Extra marks were given for pubs who grew flowers from seed, used local providers have used recycled, upcycled materials, have been creative and have the wow appeal!

Encouraging wildlife, butterflies, bees and bugs were also important factors, plus, front and back gardens were judged too!
