About the competition:

Win a beautiful Gabriel Ash coldframe and £500 for your school!

Each year we look for an adult at your school (teacher, gardening club leader, volunteer etc.) who is an inspiration to the pupils they teach and has shown a passion for encouraging gardening in their school, as well as linking gardening to the curriculum. 

This year we are delighted to be supported by Gabriel Ash who have donated four beautiful cedar Upright Coldframes worth £699 each, which will be awarded to all finalists and winners of this category!

How to enter:

Entries for this year's competition are now closed and we'll be announcing our chosen finalists for this and the other two categories soon.


All entries will receive a printed certificate.

Following the judging, each finalist will receive a Gabriel Ash Upright Coldframe (pictured below) worth £699 and £250 in National Garden Gift Vouchers for their school. The finalists will also win a free place on a Campaign for School Gardening training course and be awarded an engraved hand trowel trophy and framed certificate.
The winner (selected from the four finalists) will be awarded all of the above, as well as a visit from a VIP to their school and two adult and up to four child tickets for either Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2019 or RHS Tatton Park Flower Show 2019.
