RHS School Gardeners of the Year 2020

Supported by Hartley Botanic

Unfortunately, we have taken the decision to cancel our School Gardeners of the Year competition 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Having read the fantastic entries, we couldn’t let this strange year go by without celebrating everyone’s green-fingered achievements. So, all nominees will receive a certificate in the post.

Read more about our past winners below.
