RHS School Gardeners of the Year 2023

The results of the 2023 competition are in!

We are really excited to announce the results of our annual search for the most passionate and dedicated gardeners from schools across the UK.

We received hundreds of entries and whittled them down to just fifteen finalists across two categories: RHS School Gardening Champion of the Year and RHS School Gardening Team of the Year. Our panel of judges then selected three amazing winners. For all the details follow the links below.

School Gardening Champion of the Year

A gardening champion is an adult who inspires and champions gardening in a school. This year's winner does this in abundance, encouraging more and more young people to garden, grow and care for plants. Meet our 2023 champion.
