Horticulture students and staff have been out and about spreading the joy of flowers in Shropshire and Wales.

They have been busy planting in the community over the past month. We love seeing Derwen College’s floral designs popping up across Shropshire and Powys!

Our Derwen Horticulture team have been helping to spread the red, white and blue across Oswestry’s Cae Glas Park ahead of the jubilee celebrations.
Nursery and Production Manager Paul Moss and Garden Centre Supervisor Will Lyon, helped to design and create a garden display fit for a queen at the town park. With groups of Horticulture students helping out as part of their work experience.
Working alongside park staff, the Derwen team have been planting hanging baskets and bedding plants using red, white and blue petunias. The display also features a complex Union Flag design which has taken meticulous design and planting.
Most recently, they were at Llanfyllin Institute delivering the hanging baskets they made for the institute.

The Horticulture team have also been helping to fill planters for Cefn Community Council, and are judging Cefn Community Council Community in Bloom on 7 July.
