The Royal Horticulture Society is this year celebrating '50 Years Britain in Bloom' after it was first held in 1964. It all began when Roy Hay MBE, visited France as a horticultural journalist in 1963. Whilst there, he discovered the 'Fleurissement De France' and was enthralled by the blooming flowers, shrubs and trees. Hay’s horticultural interest discovered that the French Tourist Authority were working towards bringing more floral colours to areas of France. Therefore, upon returning to the UK, Roy contacted the British Tourist Authority and director Len Lickorish. Following talks with Len, it became evident that the pair shared similar interests in regards to beautifying Britain and so 'Britain in Bloom' was born.
