Malvern Spring Show – update

Yesterday we featured a blog focusing on Castlemorton Primary School. The school embarked on creating a school show garden this year, for the Malvern Spring Gardening Show at the Three counties showground.
Scott Tranmer a teacher at the school who has been organising the show garden, has been in contact with us today, to tell us that they have received good news from the RHS judges. The school show garden achieved a highly commended and narrowly missed out on best in school show by 1 point!  However that is still a fantastic result especially considering that it was their first show.
Additionally the show garden was also judged by the CPRE (campaign to protect rural England) with Chris Beardshaw presenting the awards.  For this Castlemorton Primary School came a very commendable 3rd out of 14.
The show garden was judged on not only on its quality, but how they linked all of the work within their school curriculum.
Scott commented that, ‘Chris Beardshaw thought our garden was great, and that he also used Wildflower Turf Limited as the suppliers for his turf’!

There may also be the chance that the garden will get some film time on Gardeners World this Friday. There is no guarantee that it will, but according to Scott, although they filmed a lot of gardens, they did spend a long time filming the school show garden….so you never know our turf could be on Gardeners World!
