Usk in Bloom work is carried out entirely by volunteers and members of partner organisations who assist with campaigns. During the main growing season volunteers form work parties to undertake planting, weeding and dead-heading work.
Each session is so arranged to last no longer than an hour and often on a Wednesday evening although alternative arrangements are made if the weather is poor. Our volunteers only contribute when their other commitments allow. No volunteer is expected to join a work party every week – no gardening experience is necessary, just enthusiasm!
Our plants are raised and supplied by The Willows Garden Centre, Usk, run by Russell and Anna Walker. They are also offering a hanging basket and watering service to local businesses.
Your Street in Bloom
We encourage residents to adopt floral tubs in their street to help with maintenance and also to collect litter.
