RHS Young School Gardener of the Year 2016
5 years old from St Mary’s Nursery School, Kirkintilloch
Louisa consistently demonstrates a love and commitment to growing and caring for the nursery garden, and shows a great deal of passion and patience. Over the summer months when the nursery closes, Louisa has continued to care for the garden by watering during dry spells. She always has a big smile when engaged in activities which enable plants and animals to flourish.
“Louisa clearly loves working in the community which is amazing to see from someone of such a young age.”
“At just 5 years old Louisa is already very talented and is definitely one to watch!”
“Louisa was an absolute delight to watch. She is only 5 years old but she is already showing great design skills and enterprise through selling her leafmould. She is full of joy, singing away as she works, and I have no doubt she will continue to grow from strength to strength.”
