School Gardens & Planters

RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2023

What's it all about?

We are inviting children and young people to get stuck in with designing, growing and planting a garden or a planter at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show which runs from Wednesday 19 July to Sunday 23 July 2023. The theme for this year is "biodiversity" - we are looking for entries to encourage or celebrate this theme by including UK wildlife-friendly elements. In showcasing the children's creations at the show, we hope to instill a sense of pride and achievement within them, knowing they're inspiring and teaching others about what they have learned and created.

New for 2023

We’re excited to announce that the RHS is working in partnership with the Natural History Museum and other partners to develop the National Education Nature Park. The programme, funded by the Department for Education, aims to make sure every young person in England has the opportunity to develop a meaningful connection to nature, understand biodiversity and make a positive difference by taking action to enhance, nurture and learn about the nature in their school grounds.
