Lufton plant nursery and the 'In Bloom' programme
Yeovil in Bloom
The Yeovil in Bloom (YIB) initiative was created in 1996 is funded by Yeovil Town Council with the floral displays being designed and maintained by South Somerset District Council’s Environmental Services in association with the Yeovil in Bloom Steering Group.
The town’s annual entry into the Britain in Bloom South West Region competition involves contributions from local businesses, schools, residents, Yeovil Country Park and a number of It’s Your Neighbourhood (IYNs) community and friends groups.
Each year there is a judging day where we welcome back the Britain in Bloom South West judges, who assess three main pillars, floral, which makes up 40% of the grading, sustainability and environment which is 30%, and community participation making up the final 30%.
How can you get involved?
Each year YIB hold a local garden competition for the community to come together and celebrate their love for plants and the green environment.
You can enter into the following categories:
1. All Year Round Front Garden
2. All Year Round Back Garden
3. Neighbourhood Display, Community or Allotment Garden
4. Hanging Baskets
5. Retail & Licensed Premises
6. Seasonal Front Garden
7. Seasonal Back Garden
