RHS ScarecrowsMore about the Schools’ Scarecrow Competition
Schools from all over the South-East will take part in the annual schools’ Scarecrow Competition.

  • Themed around national costumes from all around the world, the competition challenges the schools, which are all part of the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, to create a scarecrow from scratch using only plant and recycled materials.
  • Show visitors can vote for their favourite of these brightly coloured and imaginative scarecrows throughout the week, and a winner will be selected.

Family Activities with Perfect for Pollinators
The Children’s Zone comes alive with activities over the weekend, featuring a ‘Sow and Grow’ feature, where you’ll have a chance to sow yarrow, decorating pots and taking home an RHS care sheet explaining how to look after your new plants.

  • There will also be a buzz in the air as bumblebee hats are crafted and donned.
