‘RGS Spring Show’: Hanging Baskets Competition
Members of the RGS Gardening Club would have normally been designing and building a garden for the RHS Malvern Show this term. But, with the event sadly not going ahead this year, our young horticulturists have been challenged to channel their gardening skills but on a much smaller scale… to enter a competition to design and create a hanging basket to be displayed outside the Headmaster’s office in Whiteladies.
Taking the theme of ‘Celebration’ and representing the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, each basket is required to be fully researched, with consideration given to the choice of plants best suited for a hanging basket, planted up and brought to school ready to be put on display.
Head of Lower School Co-curricular Activities, Miss Joanna Marsh said: “I am absolutely delighted with the response to the hanging basket competition. Whilst everyone was disappointed that the RHS Malvern Festival was cancelled once again this year, the gardeners threw their enthusiasm and creativity into creating the amazingly colourful baskets which liven up the wall by the Headmaster’s office.”
We congratulate all the pupils who entered and who can now see their hanging baskets in position. The colourful baskets are ready to be judged and, in true RHS style, we invite you to vote for your favourite!
