COSHOCTON -- Coshocton is Blooming is a local Coshocton group that sponsors the annual America in Bloom competition between cities of similar size across the country using gardens and gardening as a focus for building community pride.

The website offers a trove of helpful information and do-it-yourself guidance ranging from flower arranging to weed identification and tree pruning.

There are two calendars: one for community events and one for garden planning listing "when to" dates.

You can take a virtual tour of a dozen Coshocton County murals.

The website will be a place to go to learn about how to participate in the monthly citywide Best Bloomin' Garden contest focused on the 2012 flower color theme, "Some Like it HOT."
