Meet our garden finalists for the Kent Life Garden of the Year

PUBLISHED: 11:53 17 August 2010 | UPDATED: 17:43 20 February 2013

“We have a diverse gardening programme with an allotment area, borders, a Mediterranean garden, tubs and hanging baskets, and a wooded area called Spellers’ Wood. The allotment plays a large part in outside learning for the reception class; they can cook and eat their lunch using some of the produce they've grown. There is a scented border, composting area, pond, mini-beast hotel, deadwood fencing, beetle stacks, bird and bat boxes, ladybird houses and much more.”

We had a terrific response to our inaugural Kent Life Garden of the Year competition and after much deliberation, our judging panel selected the finalists for Kent's Best Amateur Garden and Best Primary School Garden.
