The In Our Nature community garden - Manchester Flower Show
We’re inviting residents, community groups and organisations to feature one of their own plants as part of our engaging installation at this year's Manchester Flower Show. We want to put a spotlight on small, creative growing spaces across the city and inspire people to get growing at home. To take part, all you need to do is fill in the following form to tell us about your growing activities and which plant you’d like to include as part of the installation.
Please describe what growing activities you're involved in. This could include your community group, your allotment, your alleyway garden, or your growing space at home.
What plant do you want to feature as part of the installation? Please share any key features (size, type, and why you want it to be in the flower show)
What type of growing space do you have?
Indoor (windowsill etc.)
Which of these best suits how your plant will fit in the installation:
It needs to be planted into soil in a planter
It's already in a pot so it just needs a ledge/space to sit on
It needs to be moved into a new pot
Are you free to drop off your plant at St. Anne's Square on the 25th or 26th May? The plants will feature as part of the show for the entire bank holiday weekend and will be either stored in a safe place overnight or will be guarded by a security team.
Yes I can drop it off on the 25th May

No I need someone to come and collect it
I don't want to leave the plant over the weekend
For each plant, we want to share a story to help inspire those who have never gardened to get growing at home. Please share a line or two that you would like to be featured about your plant or growing space at the flower show. (it could also include your top tip for growing, how you got into growing, or a special story about how you got your plant)
