Stratford-upon-Avon in bloom


Set in beautiful countryside in the heart of England, Stratford-upon-Avon is steeped in history and tradition.

One of the many things the town is known for is its magnificent gardens, beautiful flower beds and colourful hanging baskets.

Stratford in Bloom is dedicated to enhancing the beauty of Stratford-upon-Avon through the floral features and gardens, both public and private.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to enter our annual competition with prizes for allotments, community awards, schools, small & large businesses, front and rear gardens, wildlife and pollinator friendly gardens.

Stratford-upon-Avon is known world-wide, not just for William Shakespeare, but also for its International Festivals, its charm and history, its welcome and hospitality.

Within this beautiful English market town there are secret gardens, kitchen gardens, rustic gardens, bee friendly gardens, gardens for the young, new gardens, old gardens, romantic gardens, restful gardens, private gardens and public gardens...

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight.

"Our bodies are our gardens -
our wills are our gardeners"
