Series 2

Episode 8

Duration: 29 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two EnglandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two HD

Chris Bavin travels to the Borough of Halton in Cheshire to meet three determined Bloomers who met during treatment for cancer and decided to radically change their lives. They are entering the beginners’ level scheme of Britain in Bloom, called ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’. This is a grassroots campaign designed to be a gentle introduction to the main annual competition, however, this small team of Bloomers is taking on two large and neglected community gardens.

In the first, they have grand plans to create three distinctive gardens; a sensory area, a creche garden and an allotment. In the other garden, they want to give the yard a complete makeover for residents to enjoy. But they have to battle local apathy and vandalism to get both gardens ready for the judges. Show less
