Moorsholm is a small village on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and between Whitby and the market town of Guisborough. It has a long farming tradition and is surrounded by fields, rivers, woodland and moors and is near the sea and the resort of Saltburn.

The Royal Horticultural Society have an annual In Bloom competition and Moorsholm first entered in 2006 in the Northumbria In Bloom and won a Bronze Award. In subsequent years we won Silver and Gold for the Village category and the Wansbeck trophy for three consecutive years.
2014 was our most successful year since 2006 and the success was a real achievement by winning the Best Village award in the RHS Britain In Bloom national competition.
Moorsholm is situated in a very challenging environment for gardeners as it has its own micro climate determined by the sea on one side and the moors on the other. The winters can be severe and a wind swept landscape can change the environment very quickly depending whether it is coming off the sea or off the moors. One extraordinary year was a couple of years ago when the very heavy snow lasted until late March and the daffodils were very late flowering. Daffodils are really the beginning of the season and the first Spring Judging occurs at this time.
