Young members of Fordham primary school’s Sprouts gardening club have been showing off their green fingers while trying out a new variety of strawberry plant for a local seed and plant company.

Rachel Cole and Brian Talman, of Mr Fothergill’s of Kentford, were at the school last month to help the youngsters plant the Sweetheart strawberries in their garden which should be bearing fruit this summer.

The company has also given the school some sweet pea plants, named Darcey Bussell after the famous ballerina, which the children will be cultivating in readiness for a competition at the end of next month.
