RHS Growing for Gold for Pollinators
launch event, 12th - 19th April 2014

(coincides with National Gardening Week) Growing for Gold for Pollinators is the theme for 2014s Britain in Bloom launch event and we hope that groups will register with the RHS to participate launching their Bloom activities at the start of the planting year. The RHS offers of seeds to be announced shortly. All Bloom and Its Your Neighbourhood groups registered with East Midlands in Bloom and other regions and nations in 2013/14 will be eligible for the chance to apply.   East Midlands in Bloom Judges look forward to seeing how these seeds will be used imaginatively and effectively by those entrants who have received them, in our region, this summer.
