We are dedicating an area on our website to local schools.
We will use this section of our website to feature challenges, competitions and events we run in conjunction with our local schools. We would also be happy to hear from you if you are undertaking any kind of garden project at your school and we will feature these on our School Project pages where we can keep everybody up to date with your progress.
We also regularly run competitions and events for our local schools. One of our most popular competitions is the POTATO CHALLENGE! Every year we supply schools taking part with everything they need for our Potato Challenge including potato bags, compost and (of course!) seed potatoes. It is then up to the schools, with advice from ourselves, to grow the largest quantity they can before the closing date. We then have a weigh in and the school with the largest harvest wins Garden Centre vouchers to spend at the Garden Centre on a gardening project for their school.

We have some very exciting ideas of new challenges to come (more information very soon!). If you would like to be included in any of our challenges, please do register your interest via our Schools Contact page. We have challenges that all age groups can take part in. Or why not think of some challenges of your own!
If you are a local school and have an event you wish to publicise, please do contact us we can include your event on the Schools Events page.
We enjoy having children visiting the Garden Centre. If you are a local school who would like to visit, please use our Schools Contact page. During your visit we can arrange small talks about any aspect of the Garden Centre from planting seeds and plants to keeping fish or chickens.
To contact us to take part in one of our challenges, to let us know about your gardening projects or arrange a visit to the Garden Centre, please call Chris Day on 01280 827910 or e-
