As part of an initiative to get children gardening, the Royal Horticultural Society challenged children from primary schools across the south east to create their own scarecrow with flowers exhibits for the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
The competition is based around Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and the exhibit can be seen at the show until July 10th.As well as being able to see the competition entries, there will be other activities for schools, children and families over the weekend.
We went along to the show on Wednesday and the scarecrow exhibit was hugely popular, with many people taking pictures of the entries.
There were all sorts of scarecrows on display and all of them following the wonderfully eccentric Alice in Wonderland theme. The use of roses and other outdoor plants tied the entries perfectly into the Hampton Court Palace spirit!
Take a look at some of the entries below…
