Planting bulbs in Ropemaker’s Field better than school, say kids

SCHOOLKIDS swapped their books and for shovels and trowels to help plant thousands of bulbs to make London's East End a little greener.
The four and five-year-olds from Sir William Burrough Primary at Limehouse rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty planting 6,000 daffodil and bluebell bulbs in Ropemaker's Field nearby.
Tower Hamlets park rangers organised the planting as one of a series of events this month to get youngsters involved and teach them how to plant bulbs.
They use British native bulbs where possible so the wildlife does not have to take time to adapt to new plant species.

The youngsters will see how their work has paid off when the bulbs begin to sprout in the spring.
