Snowdrops at Whitstone School

Ann and Angela planted 1000 snowdrops on the roundabout at Whitstone school this morning.  Despite the slightly damp weather and drips from the cedar tree, the soil was surprisingly dry.  They lifted turves of grass with a spade, placed  the bulbs beneath then flipped back each turf, it will be interesting to see how the bulbs grow.  Sheets of plastic were used when lifting the turves so as to make it a clean and tidy job.
