Woburn Abbey Gardeners visited Eversholt Lower School today where pupils helped them with sowing seeds which will grow into colourful wildflower borders. The wildflowers will be part of a show garden at the Woburn Abbey Garden Show in June.
BBC Three Counties Radio will be unveiling the show garden featuring an 1831 rustic temple, historically part of the Woburn Estate. In front of this structure, a biodiversity garden will be created by the Woburn Abbey Gardens Team in partnership with BBC Three Counties presenters and children from Eversholt Lower School.
Martin Towsey, Head Gardener at Woburn Abbey commented; “It’s great to be able to get the children from Eversholt School involved with this project. They were very excited to get stuck in! Giving them an understanding of how plants grow and sparking an interest in gardening is very valuable.”
Now in its 7th year, the Woburn Abbey Garden Show is an important diary date for many keen gardeners. Set against the stunning backdrop of Woburn Abbey, ‘The Gardener’s Garden Show’ offers visitors the best location of any show in the UK, taking place within the 42 acres of Abbey Gardens.
Martin said; “We’re very much looking forward to unveiling the show garden as it is the result of a great collaboration between our team here at Woburn Abbey, BBC Three Counties Radio and Eversholt Lower school”
For your opportunity to see the show garden, visit the Woburn Abbey Garden Show on 25th and 26th June.
