Lessons in Life No 694: “Disasters come out of nowhere, whereas the stuff you have sleepless nights over usually work out better than expected.” And so it proved over the Miracle-Gro’wers Learning Journey gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

School children throughout the country have received composts, containers and giant planters in which to grow a wide variety of fruit, salads and vegetables for this garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. This learning journey has given them first hand the skills needed to grow their own food, the knowledge of the time it takes between sowing and harvesting and the chance to enjoy the fresh taste of home-grown produce.

Our RHS Chelsea Flower Show display this year features plants grown by 10,000 schoolchildren. As part of our community outreach programme, we have encouraged more than 10,000 school pupils to embrace and enjoy gardening and horticulture for the first time.

The Miracle-Gro’wers Learning Journey is part of the Miracle-Gro schools growing initiative.

Each year we work alongside Pre-Schools, Primary Schools, Junior Schools, Special Schools, Senior Schools and Academies to help children to get their hands dirty and enjoy growing, while at the same time, learn the benefits of fruit, vegetables and flowers, and the science behind gardening.
