RHS FLOWER SHOW CARDIFF, 12 - 14 April 2019

You are invited to apply to take part in the Blossoming Beds Competition, which is brand new to RHS Flower Show Cardiff in 2019 and aims to encourage those with a passion for plants and an eye for beautiful blossoms. The objective of the competition is to create a pocket of spring colour and interest that will inspire visitors and could be recreated at home.

Applications are open to community groups, Britain in Bloom groups, Affiliated Societies, RHS Partner Gardens, plant societies and education/training institutions. All space is free of charge with a grant available towards plant materials.

We hope this will be a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about your group and be involved in the first outdoor RHS show in the 2019 season of events.

The deadline for applications is Friday 7 December 2018.
