Chris Bavin heads to the heart of the Black Country to meet a multicultural group of Bloomers in Wednesfield, the West Midlands. This is only their second time competing in Britain in Bloom. Last year they won a silver award but this year they are pulling out all the stops to get their first ever gold. Headed up by the communities from the Sikh temple and the local church, this group have few funds so they are relying on the wider community to donate all the plants they will need. They want to impress the judges with three key projects: to fill the grounds of the temple and church with flowers, and to transform a neglected space in the community centre into a colourful garden for toddlers. But without a plan or planting scheme, gold will be hard to achieve.
