Gainsborough will battle it out with seven other towns to become this year’s East Midlands in Bloom Competition winner.
The inspection will take place within the next two weeks and groups are making their final preparations prior to their judging day.
Bloom judges will be looking for design, planting and maintenance of open spaces, care of the environment and involvement of the community.
Results and awards will be announced on Wednesday 14th September at Oadby and Wigston.
The top five will also be recommended as East Midlands Regional Finalists for the National Britain in Bloom Competition in 2012.
