There were some great school gardens at RHS Malvern this year. I love these gardens and the idea that young children can get the chance to not only design their own garden, but to come on site and help to build it as well. Here are some pictures of my favourites:
I love the use of old school props (top left) such as the old wooden desk and the old tennis rackets. The commemorative garden (top left) is simple and effective - it tells a strong story.
The miniature house in this garden (above left) really caught my eye, complete with its' own green roof. The Gloucester garden (above right) made me smile -it has an element of fun and simplicity about it that shows a real inclusion of the children in the process. And my favourite element of all of the school gardens? A rusty old bed mattress used as a support for climbing plants - I might be using that idea at home!
