Green fingered pupils at Denny High School won a top prize at the country’s most prestigious gardening exhibition.

The second year class 2C2 was awarded a gold medal at Gardening Scotland, which took place last week at the Royal Highland Showground in Edinburgh.

The event is Scotland’s national outdoor living show and the biggest plant fair in the country, attracting leading nurseries from across the UK.

The pupils won a prize

in the pallet garden category, in which entrants must create a garden that measures just one metre in diameter.

Entitled ‘Twittering around the garden’, in reference to the popular social networking website, members of the public were encouraged to tweet their thoughts on the greenspace by using the hashtag #DennyHighGarden.

Pupils worked alongside members of Denny Wider Access to Schools project (WASP) to create the pallet garden.

The school is also planning a garden on its roof terrace for pupils to use.
