Youngsters at a Glasgow nursery will be getting some flower power this Spring after a garden centre gave them dozens of plant bulbs and bags of compost.

Bosses at Cardwell Garden Centre, near Gourock had offered to donate the bulbs free of charge to nurseries, schools and community groups.

The staff at Knightswood Early years Centre didn’t let the grass grow under their feet and quickly accepted the generous offer.

Now the kids will get busy placing the bulbs in wooden planters dotted around their playground, so the flowers will create a blaze of colour in a few weeks time.

Liz Rowan, head of Knightswood Early Years Centre said: “It’s really kind of Cardwell to donate the two sacks of bulbs and the compost.

“The youngsters will really enjoy getting their hands dirty when they plant the bulbs.

“Outdoor learning is a priority for us and we’ve been telling them all about eco systems and growing plants.

“We’ve already grown potatoes and carrots and made soup with the vegetables when they had grown.”

Paul Carmichael, retail general manager at Cardwell Garden Centre said: “It was fantastic to see how excited the kids were when we delivered the sacks of bulbs.

“It’s a great idea to teach the youngsters about planting vegetables and flowers at an early age and I’m sure they’ll be watching to see how the flowers are growing.”

Cardwell has handed out free bulbs to more than a dozen schools, nurseries, churches and community groups.
