Progress in Bloom

We are told that being outdoors in nature, green spaces and tending to a garden, tub, window box or house plants can increase our health and wellbeing, lift our mood and in still a feeling of calm and increased happiness. Sounds like a wonder drug!

So, if you love your garden, planters or are a whizz with houseplants why not enter Progress in Bloom 2022?

Progress in Bloom is open to anyone who lives in one of our properties or communities, and for our Progress Lifeline customers.

If you don’t have a garden or outdoor space why not give growing a go and enter the sunflower growing competition, it is open to everyone!

Why not nominate a garden? 

We would really love to spread the word and joy, so you can also enter the garden of a friend, family member or neighbour.  Colleagues from Progress Housing Group can also enter the garden of tenants. There are no categories so entering is really easy just follow the link below.
