Usk in Bloom

Usk in Bloom was formed in 1981 by a group of enthusiasts. Since then, its imaginative, ongoing planting and maintenance of trees, shrubs, seasonal bulbs and floral displays around the town, coupled with its environmental and educational work, and deep community involvement, have won many national and international awards. Thousands of visitors come to see its spectacle every year. The whole town is Usk in Bloom's showcase. Whether you explore the streets admiring the variety of neighbourhood gardens, stroll around the brilliance of the ever-changing displays and the natural beauty of the wildflower beds and areas, or sit and drink in the view, every corner has some spectacle or detail to admire and savour. You can spend an hour or an afternoon enjoying Usk in Bloom, and leave refreshed and uplifted.
