Tresco Chosen To Represent South West For Britain In Bloom

tresco flowersTresco has won through to the national finals of Britain in Bloom.

The island will represent the south west after gaining the Best Village title in the regional awards.

The estate will be entered into the UK finals alongside other Westcountry winners Truro and Bath. They’ll take part in the Best Large Town and Best Small City groups.

Mike Nelhams will find out which villages his island is up against later this week.

It was the first year that Tresco had entered the regional competition where they picked up three awards.

The judges were particularly impressed with the number of foreign visitors who came to the island from cruise ships and experienced their displays.

Abbey Garden’s Curator and local councillor, Mike Nelhams, says he’s delighted the island has been selected to go forward to the national contest.

The event is overseen by the Royal Horticultural Society.
