RHS Young School Gardeners of the Year 2018
Supported by Gabriel Ash
Zoe Rebecca Wilkinson
10 years old from Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancashire
Zoe grows a wide variety of fruit, vegetables and flowers, giving extras to elderly neighbours, friends, and local groups. Each year she creates a colourful memorial flower garden which attracts lots of wildlife. Zoe shares her knowledge with her home education group.
"I was incredibly impressed with how Zoe shares her skills and home-grown produce with the community including other home-schooled children, elderly neighbours and the local homeless shelter. She is a highly competent gardener who grows a huge range of different plants."
"Zoe's passion for the outdoors and her caring nature are clear. She is a very skilled young gardener who works hard to share her efforts with others."
