Monday dawns and we have created some of the most beautiful gardens thanks to all the plants, props and sundries supplied by all the schools that took up the Miracle-Gro Chelsea Challenge. Thanks for all your input - I’m sure you will be as delighted with the end results as Jane and I are.

The Miracle-Gro’wers Learning Journey is part of the Miracle-Gro schools growing initiative.

Each year we work alongside Pre-Schools, Primary Schools, Junior Schools, Special Schools, Senior Schools and Academies to help children to get their hands dirty and enjoy growing, while at the same time, learn the benefits of fruit, vegetables and flowers, and the science behind gardening.
