What is Bloom and Grow?

Bloom and Grow is Oldham’s entry into the Royal Horticultural Society’s annual North-West in Bloom Awards. This year we have also been asked to enter the Britain in Bloom awards too.

The RHS campaign is about so much more than flowers and plants, it’s about the whole community working together to improve our towns, neighbourhoods, alleyways, open spaces, gardens, roads and pavements. 

For more information on the regional campaign, visit Or for further information on the national campaign, visit 

The focus of our campaign is to help us all to feel proud of our neighbourhoods and to bring communities together. It aims to support people so they can play a vital role in keeping the borough looking beautiful, clean and attractive to residents and visitors alike. 

This year’s theme is Greening Grey Britain, but we are incorporating a transport element to our work.  

Thanks to everyone who entered our Bloom and Grow competitions. We are currently in the process of shortlisting and will be making contact with those in the running for prizes.

Keep in touch

While we’re doing #ourbit to keep the borough looking competition ready, why not do #yourbit by entering the competitions listed above or let us know what you’ve been doing in your garden or in the borough? You can do this by posting your images on our social media using the hashtag #OldhamBloom19
