Britain in Bloom with the RHS introduced a new ‘Parks and Open Spaces’ category in 2014. Having trialled this with our entrants in the Thames & Chilterns region in 2015, we will be continuing it in 2016, with some amendments. 

All publicly accessible parks and open spaces are eligible to participate in this category including cemeteries,  pay-on-entry parks and gardens, and Commercial and Business parks. Category definitions, and details of the assessment criteria will be available to download. 

There will be an entry fee for the category to cover costs. Details of how entries will be assessed are still to be finalised.
