Each summer hundreds of green-fingered, community-spirited volunteers up and down the country go blooming mad for the RHS Britain in Bloom competition.

Villages, towns and cities across Britain unite to put on a fantastic floral show to impress the judges who are touring the country now to decide on the winners of categories such as best village, town, city and urban community.

The awards are announced at a glittering ceremony in October, so while the competitors wait in anticipation of the results of their labours, here’s a taste of their hard work.
