Buxton in Bloom 2017

We can't be sure of constant sunshine in Buxton, but we wanted to be sure that Buxton basked in brightness this summer.  That's why we asked this year's Buxton in Bloom competition to decorate the town in colours that are:


There were four competition categories that people could enter:

  • Best garden (private or commercial)
  • Best hanging basket(s) or planter(s)
  • Best school garden
  • Best flowerpot person(s)

Judging took place in early August and the winners were   announced at a special event on 3rd September, in the newly re-opened Pump Room. As well as a colourful certificate, winners were entered into a prize draw, for two tickets to the pantomime in December. Here's the List of Winners.

Flowerpot people could also be included in the Flowerpot
People of Buxton Trail Map, which was on sale till the end of August.
