Leeds in Bloom

Leeds in Bloom encourages residents and businesses to work in partnership to decorate their homes or premises with flowers and make Leeds look more attractive.

Leeds in Bloom competitions

Everyone can get involved with competitions. You can enter your own garden or flowerpots, or your work place, window boxes or hanging baskets. You can even enter your school, place of worship or housing complex.

School children can also get involved in our regular Design a Flowerbed Competition - the winners get their design created outside the Civic Hall in Leeds City Centre!

Visit the related pages section for more information about each competition.

In Bloom Groups

There are over 50 local in Bloom groups across Leeds. These volunteers take pride in where they live. They enhance the area, raising funds for flower displays, creating and maintaining flower beds and litter picking.

To see if there is a ​local group near you or to establish one in your area, please contact Richard Gill at richard.gill@leeds.gov.uk.​​​​

The Arium - Supporting community groups

The Arium supports many community groups across the city with their gardening needs. Not only do we heavily support Leeds in Bloom, but also Yorkshire and Britain in Bloom too.

Leeds has loads of In Bloom groups ranging from small close knit communities to very large groups - many of whom have enjoyed success both locally and nationally. The Arium is proud to work with these groups each year. They make the city a greener place to work and live.​
