THE ANNUAL Solihull in Bloom competition has been unearthed - with the help of Notcutts Garden Centre and green-fingered Silhillians.

To mark the occasion Notcutts representatives, along with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust's Ron Wood, Solihull Mayor Irene Chamberlain, her escort Robert and bloom entrants past, present and future joined together to look forward to this year's event.

Noctutts also unveiled its one-of-a-kind ‘Flower Power’ car, covered from wheel to window in grass and flowers.

The Solihull in Bloom Garden competition gives local residents, businesses, community groups, schools and pubs the chance to enter their own fantastic floral displays in to the local competition with hundreds of pounds worth of Notcutts vouchers up for grabs for the winners.
