The 'In Bloom' Campaign

The 'In Bloom' campaign is run by Perth & Kinross Council through its Community Greenspace Team, which supports the local voluntary 'in Bloom' groups delivering the campaign.


The Association

We are the Take a Pride in P&K Association, a registered charity which provides a mutual support and advice network for 'Bloom' group volunteers. We also help local groups wishing to take on major projects in their local area. There's a map showing the location of the local groups here. The groups run local activities in line with the Royal Horticultural Society's Britain in Bloom campaign, covering three topics: Horticulture, Environment and Community. Volunteers work with their communities on flower beds and displays, environmental improvement & conservation projects and on tackling problems like litter and graffiti.
