YOUNG gardeners are being asked to put their green fingers to good use as part of the Yorkshire in Bloom preparations.
The North of England Horticultural Society will sponsor the Young People’s Award for the next three years.
The category encourages children and young adults to take part in growing flowers, vegetables and trees to enhance their local environment.
Chairman of Yorkshire in Bloom Chris Beard said: “The North of England Horticultural Society celebrates its Centenary this year and over the past 20 or so years has supported horticultural education and training through funding grants to trainees.”
