The competition awards the best community gardens across the country and local community gardening group, Norwich in Bloom, rose to the challenge with a whistle-stop tour of the city's green highlights.

The tour started at the Great Hospital with its manicured grounds before heading to the Plantation Gardens which was left abandoned until 1980 and now celebrated for its rugged foliage.

Smaller-scale but equally blossoming gardens were on route too with stops at Wall Road allotments, which produce fruit and vegetables, and the hanging baskets at the Adam and Eve pub.

Julie Brociek-Coulton, a Labour councillor for Norwich and member of Norwich in Bloom, said: "Gardens are a prominent and vital part of the city and the tour showed how strong our community is."
