Chris Bavin travels to Usk in Monmouthshire, known as the Welsh 'town of flowers'. The community here have been competing in Britain in Bloom for 36 years and regularly win gold. But every year they have to come up with fresh ideas to retain their crown. This time the community is planning three key projects. Firstly, they plan to fill the entire town square with a colourful new planting scheme. Secondly, the Gardening Gang at the local Primary School are hoping to impress the judges with their vegetable garden. Lastly, the Bloomers plan to convert a drab concrete corner into a new bee-friendly garden, but it is a massive project and the whole community needs to lend a hand. Show less
