Welcome to Pub in Bloom!

Following the huge successes of the 2018 competition, Boston in Bloom are looking for public houses within the Borough of Boston who would like to enter the 2019 “Pub in Bloom” competition. The judges will be looking for a well balanced design, good use of colour and quality planting.

Extra marks will be given for pubs who have grown flowers from seed, used local suppliers & have recycled or upcycled materials, along with the ability to be creative in their planting & of course have a wow appeal. The winning Public House will be selected to enter East Midlands in Blooms ‘Pub in Bloom’ awards in 2020, to represent Boston in the regional finals.

Encouraging wildlife, butterflies, bees and bugs will be an important factor, plus, front and back gardens will be judged too!
