PLANTING OUT: Maleah Edwards and Riley Cohen of Manakau School plant out daffodil bulbs at Driscoll Reserve.

 

Children of Manakau School had some fun and learnt something about horticulture as they helped to plant 1000 spring bulbs on Monday, May 6. The daffodils were planted out among the grass at Driscoll Reserve opposite the old Manakau Hotel under the supervision of professional gardeners, teachers and Horowhenua District Council. The planting is a community-led project, with locals and the school taking an active part. Along with the bulbs, there are roses being planted, and a range of specimen trees. The reserve had to have a heavy layer of topsoil as it sits on the site of the old Ravensdown fertiliser yard.
