Teapot plantpot competition - bringing smiles to many faces

Teapot plantpot competition - bringing smiles to many faces

In early 2019, here at BBC Gardeners' World Live we launched the first Teapot Plantpot competition. The competition, for Early Years settings, runs alongside the immensely popular Schools Wheelbarrow competition for Junior and Secondary schools.

The children were tasked with planting up their teapots, nurturing the plants and offering them to residents in a local care home – and the activity has brought smiles to many, many faces. The competition has closed for 2019, and details will be available in the Autumn about the 2020 competition.
