Buxton in Bloom 2017

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


There are four competition categories you can enter:

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

Flowerpot people can also be included in the Flowerpot
People of Buxton Trail Map, whether  they're entered in
the competition or not.

If you want to know what the judges will be looking for in the entries, check out this list of Criteria.

And don't forget the Buxton Open Gardens Trail, and the Wells Dressings competition for the best decorated premises.

More details in the entry form, available as hard copy in various shops and the Library. Or there's a printer friendly version if you prefer to print off your own.

Lastly, there's more detail in the Buxton in Bloom Project Proposal.
