BLOOMIN’ marvellous! Flower power has returned with London’s East End in bloom.

Judges are touring Tower Hamlets to look at the East End’s contribution to this year’s London in Bloom’ competition.

The team of horticultural experts has been on a whirlwind tour this week, taking in the sites including Victoria Park’s sunken gardens (pictured) , Mile End Ecology Park, Bethnal Green’s Weavers Field woodland and the Dickens Inn at St Katherine’s Dock by the Tower of London.

But they didn’t forget the smaller gems including the floral surroundings of Shadwell’s Cable Street community garden dedicated to organic flowers without pesticides.

The best and brightest are being shortlisted for the finals to compete with other parks and gardens across London.

The score card allocates points for the sustainability,’ accessibility and community involvement as well as beauty. The results are announced on September 11.
