Seeds for Schools 2017

Applications Now Open!

Here at Yarnton Nurseries we love to see the little ones taking an interest in nature and gardening, and that is why our FREE Seeds for Schools campaign is returning for 2017!

You can now register your local Oxfordshire pre-school and primary school for a FREE Seeds for Schools Project Pack by downloading an application form to be returned to the centre, or via the entry form below. We will then contact you to arrange the collection of your pack.

This year there is a choice of a flower pack or a vegetable pack (salad and herb pack now all allocated), or if you are feeling really keen, why not try one of each!

All we ask in return for your free pack are occasional updates on the progress of your flowers and vegetables, so that we can feature your school and young gardeners on our website and social media to show everyone just how easy and fun gardening can be! (Approximately 30 packs of seeds in each pack.)

You will then be invited the join us on Wednesday 5th July 2017 for our Seeds for Schools Flower Show. You can come along and display your beautiful flowers and vegetables, and the judges will be handing out this years prizes.

Closing date for applications is 31st March 2017

"I just wanted to say thank you for such a brilliant day yesterday. The children were excited to see their work on display. They had so much fun looking after the seeds and plants and making the bug etc. We will definitely be entering the next competition.

Can I say finally a big thank you to everyone at Yarnton Nurseries for being so accommodating yesterday. Your staff were superb and even found us somewhere cool to store our lunches. I only have good things to say about you :-) I look forward to coming over on my own in the Summer holiday and browsing."

"Thank you, Chris. It was lovely to meet you and of course we were delighted to receive the Yarnton trophy.

We'll be happy to take part again next year. I am already planning how to produce more crops!

Thank you for helping me to promote gardening with the children. The free seeds are such a help and it was great that they came out earlier this year."
