Bransford Webbs donates plants to Schools Garden Challenge

Company: The Bransford Webbs Plant Company

The Bransford Webbs Plant Company have donated over £12,000 worth of impulse and flowering plants to the Schools Garden Challenge, taking place next weekend at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival.

For 2023, ten schools are taking part in the challenge which involves building a 4m x 4m garden based on the theme ‘Bring your favourite book to life’. Following a successful application, the school children must design their garden, grow a proportion of the plants and build the garden for the show. It encourages children to gain valuable hands-on experience with plants and horticulture. The gardens will be judged by the RHS and awards handed out at a special awards ceremony for the children during the Thursday.

The Bransford Webbs Plant Company were keen to support this fantastic initiative which encourages local children to become involved in both horticulture but also gain amazing experience by being part of a renowned RHS show in their local area.

“This is the second year we have supported the Schools Garden Challenge. Encouraging and helping young people to discover the joys of gardening is a great way to spark the flame of the next generation”, commented David Chilvers, Sales and Marketing Director. “The festival takes place in the community in which the whole Bransford Webbs team live and work, which is extremely important to us all here”.
