Green-fingered environmentalists at Cromwell Park Primary School have been given the Best School Project award at the regional heats of Anglia in Bloom.
The school's wildlife club was behind the entry, which involved work by the club's 35 members, other pupils at the school and a team of parents.
Preparations began in spring, when seeds were sown and flowers were planted by the wildlife club. Wendy Allen, who runs the after-school club, said the children enjoyed the more physical aspects of horticulture.
"They love it - lots of hands-on work. They're happy when they're digging, potting and planting. So much good work has gone on. We just need to keep it up over the summer."
