In Bloom 2014

Most of the display beds and containers are now paid for by our generous sponsors and are marked with plaques on site. The Botanic Gardens Community Association receive sponsors funding to organise and pay the in house Nursery staff to supply flowers and plant up with the help of the contract park gardeners. Association Volunteers help with preparation and maintenance. The large display bed by the Fernery is supplied and planted by The Landscape Group contractors. See our List of Sponsors. For new sponsorship contact BGCA.
