Budding Gardeners’ Exhibition – 28 May - 5 June

Wednesday 1st June 2011

Many of the formal gardens around the UK offer some fantastic opportunities for school children to learn straight from the gardeners, and to find out just how important growing plants and vegetables is. Plants provide food for us to eat, shelter for wildlife and precious specialist habitat for insects as well as simply creating wonderfully beautiful formal and cottage gardens. Learning about horticulture is an important subject that green-fingered pupils will love, and the RHS are great at staging events and activities for kids of all ages for the half-term holidays.

This week at RHS Harlow Carr in North Yorkshire, the mini gardens local schoolchildren have created for the Budding Gardeners competition are available to view. Filled with decorative ideas and practical planting schemes to inspire visitors to get growing in their own small spaces at home, you can see the tiny gardens on display and vote for your favourite! Also encourage creative recycling and help your kids design and plant up a mini greenhouse made from old pop bottles to take home with them.

The RHS also offer the Campaign for School Gardening resources which is completely free to sign up for. They offer free SEN resources too as well as a fantastic range of crafts, activities, books list and early years toolkits too.
