Arklow Blooms for 2019 Flower Basket Scheme

Following on from the success of the flower basket scheme over the last two years, Arklow Town Team (ATT) will continue to enhance and improve the image of Arklow’s Main Street by once again launching a Flower Basket Scheme for 2019. Research has shown that this type of scheme can bring many social and environmental benefits to a town. An irrigation system has been installed from Upper Main Street to Lower Main Street (Laffins Lane).

Arising from feedback received from businesses ATT will purchase fuller and brighter baskets and have entered into an agreement with Topline Bolands Arklow to provide the baskets this year. However, it has been necessary to increase the cost of a basket to €45.00. For this amount participants will receive the following:-

A fully planted 16” flower basket (with plant food and water crystals)

Wall Bracket mounted on building by AMD staff (for new participants)

Connection to the irrigation system if business is located on Upper Main Street to Lower Main Street (Laffins Lane).

Businesses outside of the irrigation system may also purchase baskets but, will be responsible for watering their own baskets.

Baskets will be delivered during the last week in May and collected at the end of September for reuse in 2020. If your business is interested in contributing to making Arklow bloom for 2019 please complete your details hereunder, indicating the number of baskets & brackets, if any, required.

Return to Arklow Town Team, Arklow Municipal District, Castle Park, Arklow. Co. Wicklow by Friday 5th April 2019. Cheques should be made payable to Arklow Town Team. If you require any further details on the flower basket scheme please contact Deirdre Bentley at 086 8108627 or by email at or
