Scotts asked Burleydam retail operations manager Tania Simpson and senior sales tutor David Richardson to find and encourage schools to grow fruit and vegetables for the Miracle-Gro'wers gardens it displays in the Great Pavilion of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
The garden centre provided small polytunnels for propagation and protection, plus regular visits to advise three schools in its area on sowing and planting, as well as presentation. St Bernard's grew celery for Chelsea show.
Before the end of the school term, Miracle-Gro schools coordinator, Jane Hartley, and PR manager John Clowes visited the three Wirral schools supported by Burleydam to show in assembly a film and pictures of the Miracle-Gro'wers' achievements.
They learned that St Bernard's head Andrew Moor and deputy head Steve Jovens were to build a community garden at the school.
Contractors working on the new Marks & Spencer store at nearby Cheshire Oaks have volunteered to erect the fencing.
