Gardeners of the future had a chance to learn some new skills at special sessions entitled Plant It, Grow It, Eat It at Waddesdon Manor over the weekend of May 30 and 31.

Simon Wales, general manager at Waddesdon Manor said: “We’ve had over 500 young visitors potting their pumpkin plants over the half term holiday, and we can’t wait to see the results - good luck to all our keen gardeners, let’s hope their pumpkins are a triumph!”
