Special event to launch Fareham In Bloom

Green fingered residents are being urged to come along to the special launch event of this year’s Fareham In Bloom competition.

Bloom Day will take place on Saturday April 6 at Fareham Shopping Centre, outside Debenhams, between 10am and 4pm, to kick start a series of floral events.

Children will be able to make a bird feeder and plant a small seedling at the event, both which they can take home with them. They will also be able to make a mask to reflect this year’s Fareham In Bloom theme - Carnival of Flowers.  

A total of 2,500 free packets of seeds will be given away to residents and gardening experts will also be on hand for a special surgery with residents invited to bring along any unhealthy plants to get advice on how to make them flourish.

Long-term sponsor St Margaret’s Nurseries in Titchfield, Fareham Shopping Centre and volunteers from Fareham In Bloom will be at the event to offer tips and answer any questions about gardening.

Executive Member for Streetscene, Cllr Simon Martin said: “We want the whole of the Fareham Borough to get excited and involved with this year’s Fareham In Bloom competition.

“We are inviting residents young and old to come along to our launch event and take part in the fun activities. Let’s make this Fareham In Bloom a year to remember.”
