Last week Jane and I headed west towards Devon for our latest trip to visit some of the schools successful enough to come to Chelsea Flower Show.

It’s a few weeks now since the Chelsea Flower Show and we’ve managed to locate most of the props and return them to their rightful owners. We were short of the odd Wellington boot here and there and some prized established herbs plants.

It’s the final day and after a few repairs to the flower display of the 2013 garden we are up and running as usual. Luckily the sun is shining and it threatens to be warmer than previous days so no gloves required yet.

So that we can picture as many schools as possible, we decided to take group shots so that as many of our Miracle-Gro’wers would have a moment of fame as possible.

Churchfield Primary School from Cheshunt were on the early doors and Kyla, Libby, Lucy and Samuel brought along their school Paddington Bear to view the new wonders of Chelsea.

What luxury! A morning in bed on Wednesday recovering from the exhausting work of the Chelsea Flower Show - Jane allowed me this day off as I worked Saturday and Sunday.

Chelsea Flower Show is at last open to the public and sure enough the crowds rushed through the gates at 8am eager to see the wonders of this year’s displays. None of them ever realise the site, just a few weeks ago, was an empty field.

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.
