Seventeen nurseries and pre-schools have been awarded for their gardening efforts in a new scheme by Bury St Edmunds’ In Bloom campaign.
They each received a sunflower certificate and gardening voucher during the Busy Green Fingers presentation at Moreton Hall Community Centre.
Children were also given the chance to plant a daffodil bulb, donated by Woolpit Nurseries.
Melanie Lesser, co-ordinator of Bury in Bloom, said the scheme aims to encourage youngsters to get involved in gardening before they go to primary school.
Refreshments were provided by East of England Co-op. The scheme will continue next year and entry forms can be downloaded from www.buryinbloom.org.uk
