70,000 bulbs were planted last autumn in Tower Hamlets Parks! Children from Overland Day Nursery (pictured above planting bulbs at Selwyn Green Park) and Thomas Buxton School worked with the Council’s Community Rangers to help plant daffodils, bluebells and snowdrops. This is part of the Council’s commitment to deliver the Tower Hamlets Biodiversity Action Plan.
All the planting events were a great success, and much enjoyed by the kids, with face painting, arts and crafts, as well as an opportunity to learn about the benefits of nature conservation and help to brighten up their local area. The bulbs should produce a wonderful display of spring colour for many years to come, as well as providing nectar for bees and other wildlife.
