What an honour it was to have been a part of the prestigious 115th Royal Windsor Flower Show this year at The York Club in Great Windsor Park. The sun was shining and the atmosphere was just incredible.
Little Muddy Boots ran three free workshops during the event – flower presses, Hapa Zome (which involves hitting petals in a plain piece of fabric to get the natural colour out) and Elderflower Cordial Making on the Camp Fire. All held in our beautifully designed Little Muddy Boots area. It looked stunning.
We also had a mud kitchen (which was of course very messy and very popular!) and a tuff tray filled with petals and water for the children to explore. The children also made pinecone bees to take home with them. A lot of fun was had by all.
Little Muddy Boots played a key role in supporting the schools competitions. We delivered the wheelbarrows and plants to 10 local schools for the Windsor Castle ‘Wheelbarrow Challenge’ in which the schools had to plant, grow and decorate a wheelbarrow to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We also delivered potato planters and seed potatoes for the ‘Peter Seabrook Challenge’ trowel challenge in which the students had to plant and grow potatoes in a suitable container to see who could grow the biggest crop.
On show day, Hannah Brewer co-ordinated the weighing of the potatoes grown by the schools. The Countess of Wessex and Alan Titchmarsh helped to weigh the potatoes and presented the awards.
It was a very busy but very fun day that we feel truly honoured to have been a part of.
