Marigolds have been arranged to spell “Henley” and “Blooms” across the two beds to celebrate the town’s success in achieving gold in the regional round of last year’s Britain In Bloom competition.

Blue ageratums have been planted around the lettering in each bed and geraniums have been planted in the raised bed surrounding the obelisk.

Councillor Kellie Hinton, who chairs Henley in Bloom, said: “We wanted to celebrate our massive achievement in getting gold last year and going through to the national final and show the judges what it means to us. The beds look absolutely amazing and the writing really stands out. Yellow and blue are not only the Henley in Bloom colours, they are the town’s colours.

An information board explaining the significance of the beds will be erected.

The plants were provided by Toad Hall garden centre at cost price.

YELLOW and blue flowers have been planted in the celebration beds in Mill Meadows, Henley.

Members of Henley in Bloom’s Gardening Buddies planted the flowers with help from offenders as part of the community payback team.
