Frances Tophill, BBC Gardeners’ World presenter and judge for the RHS’s Campaign for School Gardening, paid a visit to St Gregory’s Catholic Science College to congratulate pupils on their success on winning the RHS School Gardening Team of the Year Competition.
Part of the prize for winning this competition was a brand new greenhouse which was installed during the half term holidays. Frances gave pupils plenty of ideas about how to get the most out of this wonderful new growing space.
At the end of the afternoon, Frances said that she was most impressed by the pupils’ gardening knowledge and enthusiasm. She was also full of praise for the ‘wonderful’ and ‘amazing’ Eco Garden and the pupils’ ownership of the space.
