Local school finds Cherry Lane Garden Centre bloomin’ helpful

Cherry Lane Garden Centre at Potterspury not only delivered the goods but gave top tips on how and what to plant in new raised beds and an allotment on the School’s site in Moon Street, Wolverton.

The new gorgeous garden right outside the school entrance is all in aid of this year’s Britain in Bloom competition, a nationwide community gardening campaign by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to transform cities, towns and villages with more than 1,600 cities, towns, villages and urban communities participating each year.

RHS judges visited the school last week as part of a visit to other Wolverton participating sites and were highly impressed with the effort that had gone into the display(s), reports Cherry Lane Garden Centre manager Jeremy Ketchell

“The children had planted vegetable seeds, fruits and herbs and were very excited because Wolverton has been awarded silver merits before in the competition,” says Jeremy.

“The judges were thrilled that Cherry Lane Roman Way had been chosen to help with the beds, as they actively encourage the use of local resources. Also they were delighted that our staff have been attending the school’s gardening club and helping encourage kids to get their fingertips green!”

And everything’s set to stay rosy in the garden at Bushfield School.

Cherry Lane Roman Way is to continue to support the gardening club and get involved with future RHS campaigns later in the year in conjunction with the school.
