Italian painter inspires school's garden at Tatton Flower Show


Having recently renovated the school garden, Nether Alderley Primary School have been growing vegetables and plants and this week they have entered the RHS Tatton Flower Show with a Primary School Container Garden.

Children from reception up to Year 6 have been involved in the school's entry which was organised by parent Rachel Carney.

This year's theme is 'A feast for your eyes' and their garden uses plants that have been grown by the children and planted up into milk containers and pop bottles.

Rachel Carney commented "All the children involved have enjoyed learning about growing vegetables, growing cabbages, purple sprouting broccoli, sweetcorn, leeks and tomatoes to name just a few of the plants."

She added "The children wanted to make a head made of vegetables, fruit and flowers. Inspired by Arcimboldo an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books."

The Primary School Container Gardens can be found in the Feast Area at RHS Tatton Flower Show and members of the public can vote for their favourite garden whilst visiting the displays.
