Hodge Hill College has been crowned winners of the BBC Gardeners’ World School Wheelbarrow Competition for 2019 with an English Country Garden’.

The School Wheelbarrow competition at BBC Gardeners’ World Live is an exceptionally popular annual feature at the show. Hodge Hill students have been working together since March to create a wheelbarrow designed on an English country garden. They have shown off their creative flair, worked as a team, and had their creation on display at the show, enjoyed by tens of thousands of visitors.

This competition is a simple, hands-on and fun gardening activity that can be enjoyed by pupils of all levels.

THE THEME - Around the World in 30 Barrows

School groups are encouraged to look at flora and fauna, garden styles, national heritage, architecture, cuisine and cultures from around the world, ultimately picking one country to be the inspiration behind the design and planting of their wheelbarrow.
