Youths & Schools/Clubs CONTAINER GARDEN 2018


Childrens Container Display

Youth /Schools ‘Container’ competition


We are pleased to invite all children,  either individuals , schools or other youth groups such a Cubs and Brownies to enter a tub display at our charity Garden Show.


The theme for this year is an 'A Container Garden' and the container can be anything in which the plants can grow successfully (i.e. have free drainage ). The filled container must be freestanding and reasonably portable so that it can be moved to the Garden site without the use of machinery (such as fork-lift). Therefore a stone trough might not be appropriate! Innovative, homemade or recycled containers will be looked upon favourably, as will considered planting schemes.


Maximum height and width of container: 80cm x 80 cm.


The containers might include vegatables, flowers or herbs. The most unusual and attractive display will receive the most points.


All entries will receive a certificate in recognition of their efforts.


Entries must be made by 15th June at the latest by emailing the organisers at to guarantee acceptance at the Show. All Containers must be delivered/displayed at the show by midday on Friday 29th June when judging will commence. They may be delivered/displayed on Wednesday 27th or Thursday 28th June.


There is no charge for entries, and all children 12 and under get free admission to the weekend.
