Series following communities involved in the annual floral competition. Chris Bavin travels to Stechford, a town taking part in the entry-level scheme of Bloom.

Chris Bavin travels to Stechford to meet a group of determined volunteers entering their town into the entry-level scheme of Bloom, called It's Your Neighbourhood. This is a grass-roots campaign which is meant to be a gentle introduction to the main annual competition, but this small team of Bloomers is taking on three daunting projects that would be a challenge for even an experienced group. They aim to tackle the overgrown weeds at the train station, clear up the litter-strewn grounds at the local police station and transform a neglected church garden into a vegetable patch to supply the local food bank. But finding invasive Japanese knotweed in the garden threatens to derail their plans.
