The competitors hoping to be selected for the UK squad for the global test of skills practised their landscape gardening skills in the Amenity Building.

Colin McKnight, Worldskills UK Training Manager in Landscape Gardening, said: "We are down to our top four competitors who are training to eventually be trialled to become part of a two-man team for the UK. They will then go on to attend the Worldskills finals in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in August."

The team will be picked in May. The hopefuls constructed a garden feature including wooden recliners, a pathway and planting.
