Her Majesty The Queen has given the Miracle Gro’wers Learning Journey gardens the royal thumbs up!

Her Majesty viewed the gardens during the royal visit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show yesterday. The biggest thrill for everyone involved was when Her Majesty not only stopped to look at the garden, but also took time to meet some of the team who were involved in the mammoth task of growing the plants and building the gardens. She also accepted a posy of flowers grown by the schoolchildren of Nelmes Primary School, Hornchurch, Essex.

Diamond Jubilee tea party

Our Chelsea guest pupils from Nelmes Primary School also took the opportunity for an early celebration of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, by arranging an impromptu tea party in the Grand Pavilion. They were joined by Peter Seabrook from The Sun, and TV gardening presenter Rachel De Thame.

We win silver

We’re very proud to announce that both Miracle Gro’wers Learning Journey gardens won an RHS Silver Flora Medal. This is a fabulous achievement, especially considering that the weather this spring has been horrendous for growing plants well. Even seasoned Chelsea exhibitors have struggled this year.

Congratulations to all our Miracle Gro’wers schools and schoolchildren - well done!
