Looking for young Miracle-Gro’wers

If you run a school gardening scheme or have a school gardening club then we're looking for YOU! We need more schools and schoolchildren to grow plants for our gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May 2014.

For the last 3 years, our Miracle-Gro’wers schoolchildren have grown plants for our extremely successful gardens at Chelsea – winning highly prestigious RHS Medals each time.

Nelmes School

We’re now putting together our plans for 2014, and we want to hear from any teachers or organisers who think they’ve got what it takes to grow for gold.

Schools that have taken part over the last 3 years have told us that being involved is fabulous for the children, builds their confidence, helps with their classes and learning, as well as developing an interest in plants, gardening, botany and the environment.

We will help and support you by providing seeds, young plants, compost, growing media and plant feeds. We can also put you in touch with local garden centres, who may also be willing to give you any further help and advice you need. And finally, if your plants are selected for the gardens, the children may be lucky enough to become RHS Chelsea Flower Show VIPs and actual come to Chelsea to show off their plants to visitors, celebrities, dignitaries – and even maybe The Queen!
