GET CREATIVE WITH A MOBILE GARDEN FOR 2017
Use your imagination to create a living garden - all in the confines of a wheeled conveyance about the size of a wheelbarrow. You could, for example, use a pram or even a wheelbarrow itself!
The theme for this year is ‘A Classic Fairy Tale’. This garden should be inspired by any Classic Fairy Tale from around the World.
So all you need is a wheeled conveyance, some potting compost, a few plants, added non-plant materials of your choice and a bit of ‘out of the barrow’ thinking.
If you would like to enter please refer to the 2017 Flower and Produce Show schedule, class 58.
