Alys Fowler promotes Birmingham's 10,000 step Floral Trail

BBC TV Gardeners' World presenter Alys Fowler met up with the Heart of England in Bloom judges before they embarked on a tour of the 10,000 step Floral Trail in Birmingham.

The Floral Trail links up the city’s Kings Heath and Highbury Parks and includes an edible garden, hanging baskets, plant tubs, wall baskets, tree trails, and a wild flower meadow.

Fowler who lives locally said: "Kings Heath is fast becoming the edible gardening hub of Birmingham.

"From the community centre to the beautiful parks, in front and back gardens and in local schools everyone has been planting and the community is really coming together."

Alys Fowler met with the judges at the award winning Fox Hollies School garden in Kings Heath. The school which caters for pupils with learning disabilities, was given a Judges Special Award for endeavour and determination in last year’s In Bloom competition.

The Floral Trail which encourages people to achieve their daily 10,000 steps as recommended by health experts, was last year awarded a Silver Gilt Award by Heart of England in Bloom judges and are hoping to do even better this year.
