Local schools demonstrate creative gardening
'Creative containers' was one of the several exciting school competitions featuring at this year's show.
The RHS Tatton Park Flower Show was the venue for a number of school competitions, getting local pupils involved and interested in gardening in a creative way.
Primary & Secondary Schools Fruit & Vegetable Trug Competition
Schools from around the North West in conjunction with the RHS Summer Fruit & Vegetable Competition had been busy growing to fill their trugs at this new competition. The children’s efforts were judged by RHS fruit and vegetables judges but the criteria focused on the best produced healthy vegetables. An exciting display of the trugs featured in the Fruit & Vegetable Pavilion.
School Front to Front Gardens
The popular feature run by the Winsford Education Partnership and sponsored by Barclays returned, seeing school children from the North West creating their very own 3m x 3m gardens. There were 28 at the Show and themes in the melting pot were 1950s/60s children’s television programmes or country gardens.
North West School’s Container Competition
This year the competition looked at schools creating their own ‘Jubilant Diamond Jubilee' containers- providing colourful and attractive displays.
