The UK's Champion Garvinea Growers are set to feature at this year's RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, with 200 primary schools having signed up their classes for the Schools Gerbera Garvinea Growing Competition (www.thesun.co.uk/schoolsgardening) .
In February, they were sent two plants of five different cultivars by Thompson & Morgan, to grow into full-sized flowering garden plants. Florist Holland is the producer.
This year is the third year in a row that British school children have participated in the Schools Gerbera Garvinea Growing Competition after the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (2011) and the World Horticultural Expo Floriade (2012),
The plants will be displayed and ready to be judged by show visitors from 9-12 July in the Grow Zone of the Children’s Marquee at the Hampton Court Palace.
