Brent Knoll garden centre announces marrow growing contest winner

A green-fingered boy has won a marrow growing competition at a garden centre in Brent Knoll.

Nine-year-old Ben Austwick won the top prize in the competition, which was run by Sanders Garden World.

Phil Tyzack, Manager, said: "During the May Bank Holiday we gave away free marrow plants to children as part of our Vegetable and Allotment Weekend."

"The children were then invited back to the garden centre to take part in a competition to see who had nurtured their plant and grown the biggest marrow."

"We would like to congratulate Ben on winning the competition and we hope he enjoyed growing the marrow."

Ben won a £10 garden centre gift card and Phil added that the competition was a great way for children to learn more about growing their own vegetables.
