A SCHOOL that is helping its pupils’ gardening skills to blossom is taking part in the Gro-sure Challenge.
Sebert Wood Primary School, on Moreton Hall, was selected by Marlows DIY and Garden Centre to take part in the challenge to inspire young children to grow plants from seeds – Gro-sure guarantees that each seed will germinate.
Marlows provided the school with a £200 voucher to spend in store, which was used to purchase seeds, compost, a climbing trellis and other gardening essentials.
Youngsters in the school’s nursery, reception and in Years 1 to 4 have kept track of their progress with a diary.
Paul Cartwright, outdoor garden centre supervisor at Marlows, visited the school to see how well they were doing.
They have also kept a Bury in Bloom diary and are waiting for news of any awards after being judged on Friday. In 2009 and 2010 the school received a gold Bury in Bloom Young Green Fingers award.
