Cel­e­brated gar­den­ers aim for Tat­ton Park dou­ble

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

STU­DENTS at Whirley Pri­mary School are hop­ing to de­fend their ti­tle as top gar­den­ers.

The young­sters cre­ated the ‘Best Pri­mary School Gar­den’ at last year’s Tat­ton Show, and are hop­ing this year’s de­sign, based on James and the Gi­ant Peach, will also earn them an ac­co­lade.

Head­teacher John Rowan said: “I am de­lighted that once again we are build­ing a gar­den for the Royal Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety Show at Tat­ton Park. We were win­ners of the ‘Best Pri­mary School Gar­den’ award in 2015 and would like to make a ‘dou­ble’ of it this year.

“The chil­dren work ex­tremely hard plan­ning, grow­ing plants and build­ing props for each gar­den, ably sup­ported by Mrs Janet Car­ney and her team of helpers who run our Gar­den­ing Club.

“Our school gar­den is look­ing fan­tas­tic at the mo­ment and our plans to bring alive ‘James and the Gi­ant Peach’ are well ad­vanced. Good luck to all in­volved and thank you for your ded­i­ca­tion and hard work.”

Along with pupils from other schools, the stu­dents at­tended a gar­den work­shop in prepa­ra­tion for the RHS Show, which runs from Wed­nes­day, July 20, to Sun­day, July 24.
