A GREAT Sutton school has been chosen to have its growing crate on display at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Brookside Primary in Rostherne Avenue is one of 30 schools selected from a total of 100 across the country.
It received a ‘Let’s Grow to Chelsea’ growing crate from the ‘Let’s Grow Team’ at Morrisons supermarket and The Sun’s gardening editor Pete Seabrook, who helped select the final 30 schools.
The crate included seeds and compost, and a digital camera to record the progress and development.
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is open from May 25-29.
School bursar Gill Griffiths said: “The gardening club at Brookside have enjoyed growing the seeds, watching them germinate and grow and transplanting the seedlings into the crate.
“They have watered and fed the seedlings and we are so pleased and privileged that we have been selected.
“We have received through the Morrisons ‘Let’s Grow’ voucher scheme lots of essential gardening equipment and seeds to assist us with our growing projects.
“We have also been fortunate to receive equipment from B&Q Ellesmere Port and Burleydam Garden Centre.”
