Many hands make light work….

We had a great time on Saturday morning planting out the 1,000 crocus crowns kindly donated by Hazel Grove Rotary Club as part of their recognition of National Polio Day.

We had lots of helpers to make what could have bee a difficult task quite an easy one.  Thank you to the mums and dads that helped and to Mr Marshall and Mr Winder who not only brought us the crocus seeds but also dug back the turf by hand.

We made some space to plant the crowns and carefully made sure they were the right way round.

Mr Marshall and Mr Winder dug the turf up for us in several patches on the lawn

When we had finished planting we covered them wit the turf. It was like a big jigsaw puzzle.

We shared the crocus crowns between us

We started from the outside and worked our way towards the middle of the hole.

We even arranged them in patterns!

It was fun!

I made sure my Dad was doing it right.

When we finished you couldn’t tell where we had planted them
