Framlingham College Prep School gardening pupils have been recognised at the Suffolk Show for their spectacular Olympic themed miniature garden.

Designed and driven by the proactive pupils in the Gardening Club, the pupils began working on the garden at the start of the summer term. Inspired by the 2024 Paris Olympics, the display featured purple sphere Alliums, pink and white stripped Petunias, runner beans intertwined with five wicker Olympic rings and succulents all grown at Brandeston.

Competing in the Suffolk School Gardens category against other Suffolk schools, the judges complimented the pupil’s wonderful choice of vibrant colours and brilliant edge landscaping, before awarding them with the Highly Commended recognition.

Launched in 2015, the Schools Show Garden Competition gives schools the opportunity to design and build a 1.5m x 1m show garden to reflect the theme which is different every year. Previous themes have included ‘A Garden Fit for a King’, ‘A Garden for All Seasons’ and ‘A Slice of Suffolk History’.
