The launch took place at Delamore Young Plants at Wisbech St Mary, one of the main sponsors.

This year’s theme will be Growing for Gold, commemorating the 50th year of the Britain in Bloom competition.

Penny Stocks of the In Bloom committee said the Royal Horticultural Society was encouraging communities to join in the celebration and are distributing sunflower seeds to all participating organisations.

She said: “At the Wisbech is in the Britain in Bloom final again this year we thought that it would be a great idea to plant as many varieties of golden flowers and vegetables as we can to really give the town a golden glow.”
