The results were announced at ceremony at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury on September 11th 2014. The town was awarded Gold and nominated category winner in the Small City Category for centres with a population of between 35,001 and 100,000.
Heart of England in Bloom chairman Roger Bache said Shrewsbury could now claim to be not just a town of flowers, but THE town of flowers.
He said the town's displays had built on the floral legacy created by Percy Thrower and showed great attention to detail.
Judges visited Shrewsbury on July 22 when hundreds of floral hanging baskets, planters and containers throughout the town were judged against exacting criteria.
According to Heart of England, its Gold award is given to 'exceptional achievers who have demonstrated a consistently high standard in all areas of the judging criteria.'
Horticultural bosses say they are now keeping their green-fingers crossed that Shrewsbury will be crowned Champion of Champions when the results of this year's Britain in Bloom competition are announced on October 16.
Jackie Brennand, Shrewsbury in Bloom Chairman said: "This is another great result for Shrewsbury and ever more fitting to receive the accolade on home turf. Bloom has been about everybody working together and I extend my congratulations to everyone involved."
Alan Mosley, Leader of the Town Council who was also present at the Ceremony congratulated everyone for their Team Shrewsbury approach to working together.
"This has been a great effort by Shrewsbury Town Council, Shropshire Council, residents, schools and businesses," he said.
"Our success in this competition just shows the level of pride we all have for Shrewsbury."
