Bath in Bloom

Welcome to the Bath in Bloom website.


The role of Bath in Bloom is to enhance our local area through gardening achievements our role includes:

  • Entering the City of Bath into the Britain in Bloom Competition, we won GOLD and Category winner in the Britain in Bloom Southwest competition 2019.
  • Running a local gardening competition for gardeners across Bath and North East Somerset - free to enter for private, community  and business gardens with a special category for schools
  • Supporting community groups and giving a few small grants each year
  • Our Committee members are active members of the Community and support local community gardening initiative.


On our website you will be able to find out how you can get involved as well as see who is taking part in projects that “Clean up” and “Green up” our areas. We are always looking for individuals or community groups who have projects up and running or who would like advice on how they can get involved.

I hope you find our site enjoyable and informative, please tell us if there is anything in particular that you would like to see, and please send us any information about events you would like us to publicise.

Important announcement.

Regrettably due to the ongoing and ever increasing number of people being effcted by the Covid pandemic we have reluctantly decided that this years Bath in Bloom awards ceremony on September 17th will have to be cancelled.
We know this is disappointing but hope you will understand the reasons behind our decision, we just cant justify a large number of people meeting in a confined area at this time of uncertainty and concern.
Where possible, committee members will deliver the awards to the winners in person.
Thank you all for supporting this years competition, lets look forward to next year being back to normal..
Sadly we have lost  two of Bath in Blooms longest serving supporters over the past few weeks, see "News and events" for details.
