Students at an independent school in Clapham showed off their horticultural skills for a seasonal competition.

Oliver House, in Nightingale Lane, held the Oliver House in Bloom show, inviting families to create their own potted garden based on the theme of their choice.

Hayley Lyons from Clapham garden centre The Poppy Patch was invited to judge the entries, with winners chosen on colour, theme, originality, arrangement and materials used.  

Headteacher Maureen Fields said: "It is an opportunity for parents and children to enjoy working together on a project using natural materials and children learning something about horticulture.

"All entries are worthy of prizes therefore it is always very difficult to choose the winners."
