June The hanging baskets element of this year's floral display is put out around the town. Once again the baskets were supplied by Beecroft Nurseries. With Wimborne in Bloom volunteers, Matt from Wimborne Minster Town Council grounds staff and Chris from Grass and Grounds Ltd we managed to get all 140 hung in just under 3 hours (including coffee break!). The barrels and tower planters will be planted up w/c 18th June.

2020 Highlights


Wimborne in Bloom is a completely voluntary organisation. We need to raise in excess of £20,000 a year to fund our operation and maintain our high standards. The fund-raising events arranged are listed here. We would be delighted to hear from anyone who would be willing to host an event for us.

Donations are always welcome and can be made directly to our charity using the Just Giving link below.

Almost all of the money raised through our fund-raising events goes towards purchasing the summer and winter flowers and plants to fill the many planters, tubs and towers located throughout the town and then pay for their regular watering throughout the long summer months. Any money left-over goes towards replacement planters, tubs, the costs associated with staging the fund-raising events and our entry into regional/national competitions.
