 Stewart Garden Schools Campaign grows by 75% as 174 schools sign up for 2017 

Stewart Garden’s Schools Campaign for 2017 is up and running. And it’s bigger than ever.

This year sees the fifth Stewart Garden Schools Campaign and 174 schools have signed up to take part. That’s up from just over 100 last year – an increase of around 75 per cent.

The Stewart Garden Schools Campaign 2017 is open to school pupils aged 6-11 years. It challenges schools and students to be creative with their Stewart Garden product kits, which are being sent out now. This year’s kit includes:

·         2x 3" flower pot, multipack of 10

·         2x 5" flower pot, multipack of 5

·         2x traditional watering can 2ltr

·         1x 52cm essentials unheated propagator

·         1x scoop

·         3x 20cm seed trays

·         an informative booklet with tips and to help to get started

The entries will be judged by Val Bourne a well-known garden writer, an ex-teacher and gardening grandmother. The winning school will receive £1,000 to spend at its local garden centre. Three runners up will each receive £100.

Nearly 500 schools across the UK have now participated in the Stewart Garden Schools Campaign since 2012. In 2015, the students at Cutcombe Church of England First School took first prize with its colourful display of vegetables presented in the Stewart Garden Corinthian Trough.

The students conducted science experiments and explored the process of photosynthesis to find out how to grow great plants. The produce then went on display at the 2015 Flower and Produce Show at Cutcombe Fete before being auctioned off to raise money for local charities.

Looking forward to this year’s campaign, Juan Pillay, marketing director at Stewart Garden, said: “Every year, we’re taken by surprise by how creative the UK’s primary school children are when it comes to growing produce and putting their learning into practice. With 174 schools taking part this year – more than ever before – we’re especially excited to see the entries this time round.”

Val said: “Engage your children and grandchildren in the garden and in the classroom. They are the next generation and gardening is akin to nurturing the planet.”

Stewart Garden loves gardens. It’s a leading grow-your-own and contemporary garden lifestyle brand, the market leader in premium plastic flower planters, including self-watering plant containers, and the voice of authority in premium consumer propagation.

Stewart Garden is a proud UK manufacturer. Its products are available in over 1,600 outlets across the country, including DIY retailers such as B&Q, Homebase and Wilko. They’re also widely stocked at garden centres such as Dobbies, Notcutts and Wyevale and in over 1,000 independent garden centres.
