Beautiful Battle with Asten Fields Pre-Scool and the Batttle & Langton School Gardening Club have created a floral design on the apron of Battle Abbey.  The design is the Tudor Rose, representing the White Rose of the House of Lancaster and the Red Rose of the House of York, adopted by Henry VII on his marriage to Elizabeth of York. The design uses Marigolds, Impatiens and Parsley. 
 
Asten Fields Pre-School and the Battle & Langton School Gardening Club were given 50 marigold plug plants each to grow on for the display.  Beautiful Battle grew the the remainder of the plants in a greenhouse at Uckham Lane Nurseries. On Thursday, 4th July, the school children brought their plants to the Abbey and, with the help of Beautiful Battle volunteers, planted the final part of the design.
