Floral Fest 2022 Winners

This year’s Floral Fest entries were themed around the Platinum Jubilee and brought a regal burst of colour and creativity to Bromley High Street.  The 2022 competition, entered by 30 primary schools from the London Borough of Bromley, was judged by gardening expert, Charlie Dimmock, Mark Reeve of Coolings Garden Centre and Frances Forrest of Your Bromley.

Crowns, corgis, the Buckingham Palace balcony, tea parties and the Queen herself were been brought to life in floral form and the judges had a difficult task selecting the winning entries. 

After much deliberation the judges selected winners and runners up in four different categories:

Charlie Dimmock commented, “Once again the creativity on display was incredible.  Picking winners is really difficult because they all deserve to win.  The planters are stunning and I would be proud to have any of them on display in my garden.  This is a lovely project that helps teach children about gardening and growing things and I have loved being a part of it..”

Frances Forrest, BID manager, added, “Bromley’s primary schools have done themselves proud with their Platinum Jubilee inspired planters.  The display is beautiful and is really being enjoyed by town centre shoppers and visitors.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Bromley Council for the Cultural Grant that funded this year’s competition.”
