Chris Bavin heads to an area he is familiar with from his days as a flower trader – Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, known as the ‘Capital of the Fens’. The community are competition veterans, entering Bloom for 25 years and winning gold for ten years in a row. This year, the Bloomers reach out to their diverse community to create an ambitious school garden, plant a brand new community orchard and fill the town with their spectacular signature floral displays. Wisbech’s Bloomers are desperate to retain their gold crown, but their efforts will be in vain if they can’t persuade the wider community to take part.
