Chris Bavin helps the experienced Bloomers of Todmorden in Yorkshire create a heritage Stumpery and Fernery in the town centre to attract visitors and wow the judges.
Chris Bavin meets the Bloomers from Todmorden in West Yorkshire, who have been competing in Bloom for 19 years but have never managed to win two gold awards in a row. They rely on Bloom to keep visitors coming to their town, so this year they have devised an ambitious plan designed to attract more people and win that elusive second gold award.
Firstly, they engage the whole community and fill the town centre with stunning flower displays. Next, they transform a concrete bank at a busy railway station into a floral memorial designed to honour local heroes and commemorate the centenary of World War One. Finally, they create a stunning heritage stumpery and fernery in the local park to wow the judges. However, with one of the hottest and driest summers ever recorded, they are struggling to complete their projects and keep their blooms alive.
