Wellacre Designs Garden for Tatton Park

At the end of the Summer term, Wellacre staff and students were proud to showcase their school garden design at the RHS Flower Show, Tatton Park. Period 6 (P6) students had been extremely busy for the months prior, preparing all the elements for their allotment with the theme of 'Biodiversity.'

This year's garden design was planned and grown from seed, bulb or plug in Wellacre’s Eco Centre by our fantastic group of Eco- Ambassadors, during the P6 co-curricular sessions during the Spring and Summer. 

The theme of the garden was Biodiversity and students chose to split the garden into four distinct habitat zones showcasing a home garden, a beach, a pond and a farm.

In July, students joined start to visit Tatton Park to put their whole garden design together for the grand opening of the RHS Flower Show on the 19th July.  

Mr Toogood, Leader of Science, said:

“These students worked extremely hard week in, week out, in all weathers to make this our best Flower Show garden yet. We are extremely proud of their efforts. It was a great opportunity for them to grow all the elements and then travel to Tatton Park in July to plant their garden and tour the whole show. They also had the chance to see the deer at Tatton as well as other wildlife!”

A huge well done and thanks to Tom B, Ciaran, Sam, Harrison, Jack, Tom L, and Kian, in Year 11, Lex, Remi and Connor in Year 10, and Dylan and Joshua, in Year 9.

One of our Eco-Ambassadors said:

“Seeing the garden at the show surrounded by visitors was amazing and so was seeing deer as I’ve never seen them before!”

Mr Toogood added:

“Wellacre’s biodiversity garden looked incredible and may well have been our best one yet!  The project has helped students develop resilience and learn all about gardening, how we grow food and the benefits of the great outdoors!”

Mrs Sharrock, Principal, said:

“Well done to Mr Toogood and the Tatton team for yet another excellent show garden; it was a fantastic team effort!”
