Youngsters from six Suffolk schools put their green-fingered prowess to good use with the school gardens competition.
Martlesham Primary Academy, Old Newton CEVC Primary, Stratford St Mary Primary, Great Barton CEVC Primary, Bramford Primary and Crawfords CEVC Primary all crafted special gardens on the theme of wildlife, right through from designing the spaces to planting the flowers.
Old Newton and Crawfords scooped the large gold prizes while Bramford enjoyed the gold award.
Libby Brooks, gardening club co-ordinator at Old Newton said: “It’s terrific and very rewarding to see it – they have worked so hard and shown wonderful teamwork.”
The project is the second time the Suffolk Show has held the competition, which helps children learn about plants and wildlife.
