Hove Park Lower School’s magnolia tree takes root thanks to gardening club
9:32am Wednesday 17th July 2013 in News
Children at Hove Park Lower School have rooted success on their school grounds.
Members of Hove Park’s gardening club gathered to plant a 10ft Magnolia tree donated by The Diamond Jubilee Tree Project, of which Her Royal Majesty The Queen is an ambassador.
This is the second tree planting initiative Hove Park Lower School has been involved in since Local Fruit Futures helped plant an orchard in the car park in 2011.
Across the country the campaign has planted more than 12,000 acres of new woodland, a one 460-acre “Diamond Wood’’ in the National Forest in Leicestershire, and 60 diamond woods of more than 60 acres each.
It has also provided 3,500 communities and 40,000 schools with free packs of trees.
