Kings Heath's place as a national finallist came through success in the regional competition last year.
Judges Martyn Hird and Mel Henley were taken on a tour of Kings Heath including the High Street, Village Square and parks followed by a presentation at Fox Hollies School. They also met with youngsters who have created a flower and vegetable garden on previously unused land.
Bob Prew, chair of Kings Heath Centre Partnership's clean and green committee, said he hoped the judges had been impressed. "They witnessed not only a magnificent blaze of colour – hanging baskets, planters, railing baskets, bedding plants and Birmingham's largest variety of trees but also the enthusiasm and vibrancy of the community that made this all possible".
The results of the annual competition will be announced in Guernsey in October after which a local event will be held to announce the result along with the winners of the annual front garden competition for residents and, for the first time, a competition for businesses.
