MORE than 1000 flowers have been "planted" by Bournemouth Pier this morning to celebrate the town making it through to the finals of the Britain in Bloom competition.

Twelve hundred artificial gerberas have been planted in the shape of the word Bournemouth as part of the Blooming Beautiful Bournemouth campaign.

The campaign, run by Bournemouth's Coastal BID team and Bournemouth Tourism, also saw real gerberas being given away for free at Paddington Station.

One commuter said, ““It was one of the nicest promotions I've seen. I have carried my flower from meeting to meeting all day long and everyone has loved it."

Bournemouth has also been promoted by the BID through national weekend advertising, promotions on London radio stations, and the popular Blooming Beautiful Business Competition, in conjunction with the Daily Echo and Heart radio.

The five finalists will be announced in the Daily Echo on Monday with just a week for people to cast their all important votes.
