Campaign to get kids gardening

The UKs leading landscaping company has launched a bespoke brochure in support of the Royal Horticultural Societys (RHS) Campaign for School Gardening.

The idea behind the brochure is to help inspire schools to get their pupils gardening.

Marshalls group marketing director Chris Harrop explained that introducing a new generation to gardening is an extremely important task.

"Marshalls firmly believe that an important upcoming issue for UK gardening is how the next generation will view their gardens, whether it is at school or home," he said.

"That is why we are putting our full support behind the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, to help even more children across the UK experience the joys of outdoor learning."

Around 5,000 schools have signed up to the RHS campaign since September 2007 and this latest move by Marshalls should help increase that number.

The company attended the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year and highlighted the issue of child gardening with its display entitled: The Marshalls Garden That Kids Really Want!.
