Judges had a tour of green spaces in the running for a national horticultural award.
Britain in Bloom experts were shown around different areas of Norwich by the volunteer-led group Friends of Norwich in Bloom.
The organisation has been invited as a finalist to take part in Britain in Bloom.
It was selected from more than 4,000 other in bloom groups.
Results for the national horticultural contest will be announced on October 18 in Belfast.
Julie Brociek-Coulton, competition organiser for the friends of Norwich in Bloom, said: 'The judges were impressed by the amount of community support in Norwich. Without volunteers where would we be?'
The tour took in Café Britannia on Britannia Road, Grapes Hill Community Garden, Plantation Garden, Eaton Park, Edith Cavell Academy, Westlegate and All Saints' Church, the Great Hospital, Maids Head Hotel, and the Adam and Eve pub.
