GREEN-fingered Ottery school children are going-head-to-head against eight other schools in a growing competition this Sunday.The efforts of hundreds of children from Sidmouth, Awliscombe, Branscombe, Feniton, Honiton, Littletown, Rockbeare, Sidbury and Ottery are being judged at Otter Nurseries.A spokesman for the nurseries said: "They were all sent a letter and asked if their school would like to take part in Otter's geranium growing competition. "They all collected a geranium, compost and a pot, which were given out in April. Eighty pupils from each school were allowed to take part."All the children have been asked to come in with their plants for 1pm as judging will take place at 1.30pm, with the winner announced at 2.15pm. The judges will be Sylvia Gillard and Pat Saunders of Otter Nurseries - and there will also be a special guest appearance by Pip the Pony from Wellington Farm Rescue. The prize is £100 worth of Otter gift vouchers but a prize will be given to every child.
