Weston Horticultural Society

Weston Horticultural Society has been inspiring the next generation of gardeners with its Plant A Wheelbarrow competition.

Eight schools took on the challenge of creating an eye-catching wheelbarrow full of floral displays.

Ashcombe, Becket, Castle Batch, Christ Church, Kewstoke, Milton Park, St Marks, and St Martin’s primary schools all entered wheelbarrows.

Some schools chose a focus for their design, with St Mark’s, Becket and Kewstoke primary schools creating a bug and wildlife theme.

Students from St Martin’s Primary School in Worle showed their knowledge of local history off in their wheelbarrow, which had a World War Two theme.

Castle Batch Primary School won the competition with its beach-themed display.

Ashcombe Primary School came second and St Martin’s third.
