Barrel Bug at Hampton Court Flower Show

Bug Barrels at RHS Hampton Court

By Fiona Wilkins - March 11th, 2024 | Posted in Article

We are delighted to announce Dysart School will be taking part in the Bug Barrels Challenge at the upcoming RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival from Tuesday 2nd July to Sunday 7th July. Pupils will be designing and planting an up-cycled oil drum to support and encourage biodiversity in a creative and fun way.

We are the first SEN school to take part in this initiative and we are very excited about trailblazing the way for children with Special Educational Needs at this prestigious show. Entries are encouraged to be horticulturally correct (right plant, right place). We will need to think about what type of wildlife we want to encourage and then choose appropriate plants.

The Royal Horticultural Society is the UK’s leading gardening charity. It aims to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place. They are committed to inspiring everyone to grow. To find out more about the Bug Barrels Challenge click the button below.
