School Gardens Competition

RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2021

Does your school have what it takes to design and build an amazing show garden?

Primary and secondary schools in the North West are now invited to apply to take part in the School Gardens Competition at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park, which will take place between 21 - 25 July 2021.

The competition provides school pupils with the amazing opportunity to design, grow, build and showcase a garden at an RHS Show. By participating, children can gain invaluable hands on experience with plants and horticulture, while developing an understanding of different growing practices and environmentally-friendly gardening.

Schools are asked to create their gardens in either a 3m x 3m (primary) or 4m x 4m (secondary) plot.  A winner will be chosen during the Show by a panel of judges, and the winner of the ‘People's Choice Award’ will be nominated for by visitors. Winners will receive £50 in gardening gift vouchers.
