Pershore High School Students Grow for Gold at Chelsea Flower Show


Students have produced 70 Tea Pots of Mint as part of the display that will be seen by people from all over the world at the Chelsea Flower Show in London from the 21st to 26th May.


All of the teapots were donated to Pershore High School by people living in the area following our plea for unwanted pots on social media earlier in the year.


Students have taken cuttings of 11 different varieties of mint, all from the plants grown at Fresh @ Burcot Garden Centre, and rooted these before potting them up to grow on and plant into the tea pots.


The students efforts in gardening have been recognised by leading horticulturalist and gardening writer Peter Seabrook, who is creating a garden at this month’s Chelsea Flower show. He has enlisted the help of the students at the school to grow some key items for display in his garden.


All of the students have worked very hard, and the support we

have had from parents, the community and colleagues is superb.
