Find out more about Farnham in Bloom and how the community gets involved.


Farnham in Bloom is the title of our entry into the annual South and South East in Bloom competition. It is an event that takes place throughout the year and involves local people and community organisations working together to make lasting improvements to the town and surrounding villages.

The competition is about more than flowers. Entries are judged on:

  • horticultural achievement
  • environmental responsibility
  • community participation

Last year we entered five categories and we provided the judges with the following portfolios to demonstrate our work and achievements:-
