Welcome to the Daisy Hill in Bloom website. Since 2008 Daisy Hill in Bloom has been working to improve our environment and encourage people to get involved. Each year we've had a small grant from the Town Council to purchase plants and other supplies. All the hard work is done by volunteers.

We'll be going ahead with planting winter flowering plants on our containers this autumn - but first we need to clear away the fading summer bedding plants - see the What's Happening page for details.
Daisy Hill in Bloom had to suspend most activities during the pandemic, but now we're back in action. Over the course of 2020 we took the opportunity to clear out old and weed-infested compost from the railings planters around the village, and plant new bulbs there - daffs and miniature iris. We also continued with some litter-picking and tidying activities either individually or with very small socially distanced groups, and we had meetings via Zoom.
In May 2021 we were able once again to fill all our containers and raised beds with summer-flowering plants to bring colour to our area. In September we organised a successful community litter pick, and also held our first in person meeting for over 18 months.
Because our Facebook page is proving so successful, and so simple to update, we have taken the decision to close the website at the end of the current contract, as it is no longer giving us value for money. So if you have previously been a regular visitor to this page please follow us on Facebook, or - if you don't use Facebook - please contact us by email and ask to be kept updated
