This week, our pupils helped gardeners from the local community plant almost 1,000 native British daffodil bulbs in and near to the school. It used to be a common wild flower but is now quite rare in the countryside. It is smaller and paler than garden varieties and will quickly naturalise. It is often called the “Lent Lily” as it usually blooms during Lent, the period before Easter, when it will provide a valuable source of early nectar for bees and butterflies. The gardeners appreciated the children’s help and praised them for their enthusiasm and good behaviour. We would like to thank the Gardeners for asking us to help them with this project.
