Children at Ladywood Junior School enjoyed seeing the result of their hard work as crocuses they planted came into flower earlier this month.
The crocuses, donated by us last year, were planted last year by the school’s Gardening Club to mark the school’s 50th anniversary. Our donation allowed every child and teacher to plant at least one bulb to contribute to the celebration.
The crocuses improve the school ground’s appearance and have also helped improve the physical and mental health of the children too, through the gardening work. The project has also taught children about teamwork, respect for each other, themselves and all living things and helped nurture a love of the great outdoors.
