Margaret Brearley School has a reputation for its horticulture, featuring as it does, two gardens and an area filled with planters. Some of the planters, however weren't quite looking their best any more. Some were, dare we say it, a bit... past their best.

The results are stunning and the unenviable job of deciding which pot is best went Laura Pease, Whitefield Principal, who spent time in serious deliberation with a serious looking clipboard, talking over merits of the various pots – their decoration, their planting, the extent to which they were multi-sensory in terms of texture and scent.
We don't yet know the results. They are a closely guarded secret. We'll let you know more as soon as the news breaks.
