RHS Budding Gardeners 2017 Results

See this year's fantastic entries!

Over the May half-term, 37 adventurous mini show gardens were planted up at RHS Garden Wisley by school children for our annual Budding Gardeners competition.

The pupils, from schools across London and the South East, were given the challenge of designing a one meter by one meter garden. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the publication of Enid Blyton’s popular book series, this year’s Budding Gardeners theme was The Famous Five go on an Adventure!

Expert judges from the RHS and our competition sponsor, The Rotary Club of Guildford, awarded each garden with a gold or silver medal and chose the winners of six coveted awards. Throughout the May half-term visitors to RHS Garden Wisley were also invited to vote for their favourite garden which was awarded the People's Choice Award.
