We are delighted to announce the winner of the ‘Individual’ category of the Garden Shoebox competition is Grace Matheson (age 7). 🤩 Grace’s garden is based on a beach theme and features carrot, nasturtium and lobelia plants – all grown from seed! Grace upcycled lots of things from in and around her house and beach to make the garden, including: lollypop sticks to make the bench, a cotton reel for a table, and sweetie wrappers to make cushions! Brilliant work!
Runners up were: Rosie Gollings (age 10), also with a beach themed garden, and Aiden Campbell (pictured), with his ‘Wild Garden’ inspired by the croft he lives on (featuring chives, and a drawbridge for the animals to get in and out).
We had lots of great entries into the individual competition but there can only be one winner (and 2 runner-ups)! Thanks to all the other children who entered. A great job by everyone – the judges were impressed!
