Communities in Bloom Programs and Projects

The Lambton Shores Committee has plenty of programs and projects on the go!  Check them out below:

Flower Colours

Communities in Bloom 2024 - ORANGE

Communities in Bloom Canada, at the request of several communities involved in the program, has decided to continue with a colour theme for 2024. This year's colour selection is ORANGE and Lambton Shores Communities in Bloom will follow suit but add the colour PURPLE into the mix. We look forward to seeing all the beautiful shades of purple throughout the municipality this year!

Orange was selected in honour of our Indigenous communities as we celebrate all the ways Plants Love You

Purple has a variety of effects on the mind and body, including uplifting spirits, calming the mind, enhanced feelings of spirituality and encouraging imagination and creativity.

The municipal hanging baskets will feature:

  • Supertunia Purple Velvet
  • Calibrachoa (Million Bells) - orange
  • Vinca vine

Some municipal gardens and planters will feature the above flowers, along with orange lantana, white petunias and a splash of lime green with sweet potato vines.

Trash Bash

Each year on or around Earth Day, Lambton Shores Communities in Bloom hosts their annual trash bash - an initiative to clean up our neighbourhoods after winter. Everyone is encouraged to keep the initiative going throughout the year! If you see trash on the ground while you are out in your neighbourhood, pick it up and throw it in your trash receptacle. 

Adopt-A-Pot or Plot

Adopters are responsible for watering, fertilizing, dead heading and weeding. Committee members are happy to provide advice where needed!

This year's planters will contain Supertunia Purple Velvet, Orange Lantana, Orange Calibrachoa (Million Bells) and Sweet Potato Vine in lime green

Native Trees

Lambton Shores Communities in Bloom continues to encourage the planting of native trees in our community. Many areas are impacted by invasive species such as LLD Moths and Oak Wilt. Click on the links to learn more and what can be done to help with these problems.
