With less than a week before RHS Chelsea Flower Show opens to the press, the glittering celebrities and, of course, Her Majesty The Queen next Monday, we’ve been collecting together all the plants for our Miracle-Gro’wers Learning Journey gardens.
The children have done a fantastic job growing on the plants, tending them with loving care and, at the same time, enjoying learning new gardening skills. It’s great to see how much fun they’ve had and how much thought and effort they’ve put into this huge task.
In the image above, the wicker basket has been made by the pupils of Landscove Primary School and will make a great ‘different’ container for the garden. And it has been a huge responsibility for us to ensure we get the plants safely to the show, so they look as perfect as when they left the schools.
We have to say a huge thank you to the schoolchildren, their teachers and schools and everyone else who has been involved in this growing project. It’s fabulous seeing the whole thing coming together.
Keep coming back to see how the gardens are developing and how we do when judging starts on Monday. Keep your fingers crossed for us and the children.
And if you’re going to Chelsea Flower Show please come along and see the fabulous results. The two gardens, the “Miracle-Gro’wers Learning Journey – Fruit and Vegetables Garden” (stand GPE2) and the “Miracle-Gro’wers Learning Journey – Cut Flowers Garden” (stand GPE3) are in the Great Pavilion.
