Pudsey In Bloom is a community group formed in 2003. Our aim is to make Pudsey a more attractive place for residents and visitors and to encourage everyone to take pride in their environment. Along the way we would like to improve on the permanent planting and aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible. 2008 was our first entry in the Yorkshire In Bloom Competition and we won SILVER!

If you remember, or you can refresh your memory by looking back at earlier posts, we were busy last Autumn planting out lots of daffodil bulbs donated to the group by Groundwork. We planted two varieties of tete a tete and some pseudo narcissi bulbs, and we are pleased to say that these made a show, all be it a small one, this spring. But at least they survived enough to take a hold and hopefully will go from strength to strength!
. ..we missed out on our spring judging! We believe that this year was our best ever spring display, with a lovely variety of plants, shrubs and bulbs at their best. In past years we have always picked up our extra points in summer, but this year we feel the YIB judges would definitely have been impressed with Pudsey`s spring displays. All we can do is try impress them with a collection of photos and hope they get the picture across, I`m sure you will agree Pudsey looked super.
The tulips planted in Sparrow Park by one of our members have really put on a good show, adding plenty of colour to the central bed. In fact the whole area is looking great and it`s good to see people sitting there enjoying it in the recent sunny weather.
