Children at Bright Horizons Fleet Day Nursery and Preschool in Hampshire have won the bronze award for their exploits in this year’s Fleet in Bloom competition.
The children recently went on an outing to a nearby Morrisons store where they purchased herbs, bulbs, strawberries and tomato plants for the nursery garden. A group of judges from the competition came to the nursery to judge the garden which was subsequently announced as the bronze winner.
“We were pleased to hear that this year’s theme for Fleet in Bloom was edible garden,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Kelly Smith. “The children nurtured the plants by watering them daily and removing the weeds. We were so elated when we found out we had won bronze in the competition and that photos of our garden are available to view in the Hart Shopping Centre.”
