The RHS has launched its annual search for the most talented and inspiring school gardeners in the RHS School Gardeners of the Year 2016 competition.

Schools across the UK are invited to nominate their gardening superstars for three coveted awards: Young School Gardener of the Year, School Gardening Team of the Year, and School Gardening Champion of the Year. The deadline for entries is Friday 22 April.

Entries will be judged by horticulturist and television presenter Frances Tophill.

Winners of the three categories will receive a host of prizes including ?500 in gardening vouchers for their school, tools, tickets to RHS flower shows, a visit from Frances Tophill and opportunities such as working alongside RHS gardeners for a day.

Sarah Cathcart, RHS head of education and learning, said: ?The RHS School Gardeners of the Year is a fantastic way to showcase the talent of the country?s young horticulturists involve more schools in the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and enthuse more children and young people about the benefits of horticulture and the diverse career opportunities it can provide.?
