New Bloomers and Fall Garden Clean Up

It is that time of year when we need to clean up our gardens, remove the annuals, trim all the perennials and shrubbery and get ready to plant our 20,000 tulip bulbs and 4,000 other spring bulbs.

Here are Alex and Nick DeEmedio helping with Fall clean up at the Lewes Firehouse.

Order a Holiday Wreath from Lewes in Bloom – Now thru November 6th


In this pandemic year, holiday decorations from Lewes in Bloom will lift everyone’s spirits.  It’s an annual tradition for Lewes in Bloom to sell live, decorated wreaths from Maine constructed of fragrant Balsam Fir, adorned with a beautiful 6-loop red bow.

You may order your wreaths in person from a Lewes in Bloom volunteer or online at any time from Monday, October 12 thru Friday, November 6. The Wreaths are available in 2 sizes:  24 inches, [$40] or 32 inches, [$60].

LIB volunteers will deliver wreaths to your home or business, Wed., Dec. 2 and Thurs., Dec. 3.

The wreath sale is a major LIB fundraiser, enabling our 280-person volunteer organization to plant tulips and annual blooms in over 26 locations throughout the city.  Lewes in Bloom also maintains the Children’s Learning Garden in Stango Park and the Herb Garden at the Fisher-Marten House in Zwaanendael Park. Additionally, wreath profits support Art in Bloom, a project of LIB that further enhances the beauty and uniqueness of Lewes through public art.  


YOU DID IT !!!!!


We exceeded our goal.  Thank you to all of our supporters.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

On Friday, September 4th, members of Lewes in Bloom along with Mayor Ted Becker celebrated reaching our Bucks For Blooms Fundraiser goal by painting the final level of our giant tulip on 2nd Street.  We are so grateful to all our friends and neighbors who gave so generously.  We could not have done it without all of your support!

Lewes in Bloom is truly grateful that we will be able to continue our mission to promote the beautification and maintenance of Historic Lewes and the community at large.  Diane McGreal, fundraising chair, filled in the final level of the tulip stem.  Dianne Stevens, LIB co-chair, was interviewed for WRDE TV as well as the Cape Gazette about our accomplishments and plans going forward.

The Bucks for Blooms campaign was originally schedule to go thru the end of September.  As a result of your generous support, we reached our goal before the end of August.
