The core of the Bloom is the participation of our Cities, Towns and Villages. Britain in Bloom with the RHS celebrated 50 years of Community Horticulture in 2014, and Thames and Chilterns in Bloom has been running for most of this period. 

We welcome new entries in all the categories - which are based on population; please follow the links for the entry form and background information on entering.

Judging for the Thames and Chilterns region will take place in July 2016. 

The best of our category winners may be offered the opportunity to take part in the National (UK) Finals of Britain in Bloom in 2017, with judging in August 2017.

We also make a number of regional Awards, further information on these is available on the Regional and Schools Awards page of this website.

If you wish your community to be considered for any of these, please inform the judges at or before the start of the tour.
