The City of Exeter was chosen to represent the South West in the 2016 RHS Britain in Bloom National Competition and was judged on Monday 1 August 2016.
Exeter entered the ‘small city’ category along with Harrogate, Loughborough, Rugby, Colchester and Canterbury and the results were announced in October.
There were 72 UK finalists representing different regions and categories. Devon was well represented with Beer (Village category) and Exmouth (Coastal Town category) from South West in Bloom.
The Exeter in Bloom steering group is using this website to keep everyone informed about how Exeter reached the Finals, the judges, the judging route, what the judges looked for, our sponsors and partners in the project and, of course, the results.
