Exeter will need to be looking its best on Tuesday July 8 - for the arrival of the Britain in Bloom judges.
The city comes under the green microscope when the two judges arrive to at the Guildhall for a cup of tea with the Lord Mayor, Cllrs Percy Prowse, before setting off on a tour, that starts at Rougement Gardens.
From there it is to High Street and the flower displays outside McGahey’s before heading across to the wonders of Southernhay Gardens.
After lunch at the Guildhall the examination continues with a visit to Stoke Hill Infants School which has been a leading light in school gardening and landscaping.
This will be followed by a comprehensive tour of Exeter University’s renowned campus gardens.
