Mygrove

Create your own Mygrove!

Create your own Mygrove and your school could win a trip to see The Prince's sustainably run gardens at Highgrove.


Introduction to Mygrove by The Prince of Wales

Welcome to Mygrove, a site which has been specially designed for you to share in the fun of growing your own plants and vegetables.

As a keen gardener and farmer myself, it is wonderful to see the seasons producing different flowers and fruits – from the golden daffodils of early Spring to the ripe red apples of Autumn.

Through your school, we’d like you to join our Mygrove challenge – keeping an up-to-date- online blog about your own growing experiences. Whether you are creating a herb garden, tending a vegetable patch, building a bird box or simply growing flowers in a window box, we would like to hear from you.

At the same time as telling us about your own experiences, you can also read about what other schools are growing, as well as following what we are up to in my own garden at Highgrove. You never know, you might pick up some ideas!

In May, we will be selecting pupils from the best school – based on what has been grown and how the blog has been maintained – to come on a special trip around my garden at Highgrove.

I often think that gardening is a bit like painting. No matter how big or small the piece of paper or canvas you start with, it is what you create which matters!

Just like you and your school will be updating your own blogs and letting us know how you are getting on with your own Mygrove, we will be updating the Mygrove blog, too!

The blog on the right-hand side will keep you updated with lots of tips and hints for getting the best out of your Mygrove space.

Feel free to take a look at the blogs from other schools in the competition as well.

We hope you enjoy starting your own Mygrove and can’t wait to see what you start doing.

Good Luck!

The Mygrove team

Eggsxiting News From The Nest Box.

Thursday 17th April 2014

It's all happening inside here.

Yippee! Our resident blue tits have been busy and at last there are some eggs, just in time for Easter. No doubt our feathered friends were waiting for the peace and quiet of the school holidays to perform their special miracle. Lucky for us, our school caretaker has been keeping an eye on the camera and was happy to share the news. Hopefully we will be able to get some pictures next week. In the meantime fingers crossed our eggs will soon hatch into healthy baby blue tits.
