Wilmslow in Bloom


Wilmslow will be entering the In Bloom competition again this year.

The In Bloom team encourages businesses to help brighten the town by planting colourful displays and works with community groups around the town that use edible and flowering plants

Sue Worthington, the incoming Chair of In Bloom, explained “In several areas we have cleared self-seeded or inappropriate plants before designing and planting more attractively. We have also planted thousands of daffodil bulbs and crocus. The improvement is particularly evident around the Old Stables building and the nearby pond.”

Two of the associated groups focus their attention on growing fruit and vegetables and welcome additional volunteers at any time

Sue reminded of the success in previous years “Our combined activities have been rewarded with Gold Awards from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) every year since 2014. The town represented the Northwest in the national finals in 2019. This year we will be focusing our planting theme to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee”

RHS judges visit Wilmslow on 4 July and mark the activities in the town against strict criteria.

The In Bloom team is run by volunteers. They help shape the attractiveness and appeal of the town using floral and other displays. Flowers can and do make a significant improvement without incurring significant costs.

Ruth Menlove, former Chair of In Bloom said “As Wilmslow recovers from the ravages of lockdowns, the more we all do to help promote the town both to residents and visitors is valuable.
