BLOOM: Helping Budleigh in Bloom to prune roses and prepare flower beds has benefited Bicton students.

Horticulture lecturer Ben Murrell said: “Helping the local community and working in a real life situation is great for our students.

“Last year’s RHS Level 2 Practical students planted the roses for Budleigh in Bloom as part of their course syllabus, and this year’s students have pruned them; it’s a rewarding situation for everyone involved.”
