Granton's Eco-Team Charm Chelsea

Amazingly, for the third year running, we were chosen to attend the Chelsea Flower Show on the Miracle Gro stand.  The Eco-Team had spent time and effort conducting an experiment investigating how broad beans grew in different soil types, including garden soil, garden soil with homemade compost and garden soil with homemade compost and Magic Start.  On Monday, which was Press Day, we arrived full of anticipation and were led to the Miracle Gro stand by John.  He briefed us on the layout of the stand, and where we would tell visitors all about our experiment.

As it was not only Press Day but also Celebrity Day we were looking forward to spotting famous people and were rewarded by Joe Johnson (Boris Johnson's brother and Minister for Universities and Science) visiting the stand. He was very interested in our work and complemented us on our results.

Another famous person who visited the stand was Baroness Fookes (Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords), she was very enthusiastic and spent alot of time talking to Ruby and Glory about their interest in gardening and their work with the Eco-Team.

Other famous people we met were: Nigel Havers, Leslie Joseph, Anneka Rice, Martin Dougan (from Newsround), Matt Baker and Floella Benjamin.  We also saw Princess Anne's children - Peter and Zara Phillips, Sophie Raworth, Joe Swift, Brenda Blethyn and Sir Ian McKellen.  Can you spot them in our gallery?
