New for 2018 - GYOP bag labelling competition  

Changes to this year's GYOP meant we were unable to include labels for your grow bags, in this year kit, making it difficult to identify the variety growing.

In order to help with this we suggested some ways in which you could label your bags and also introduced a new competition for the most innovative way.

We received lots of fantastic entries and had a very difficult job selecting our winners.

This years winners were Llandysilio Primary School in Wales with their ingenious QR bag labels.

Use your QR reader to listen to their varieties.

GYOP on display

Congratulations to Llandysilio School who not only won £50 of gardening vouchers for their school, but were also invited along by Peter Seabrook, Gardening Editor of The Sun newspaper to this years Chelsea Flower Show.

Peter is a great champion of the GYOP project and featured the schools winning label as part of his award winning display.

Ruby Conde went along to represent Llandysilio School and had a fantastic day.

Winning label

"As I have children aged 4-7 in my class, we decided to make labels that would be accessible to everyone. We made a voice recording of the children saying which variety of potatoes were in the bags. We then turned them into QR codes"
Carol Hughes, Llandysilio School, Wales

The school also made this special video QR code to play at the Chelsea Flower Show.
