CHILDREN are busy growing bean plants at Bright Horizons Sale Day Nursery and Preschool.

They painted their own pots and had lots of fun using the soil to plant.

The activity is part of the nursery’s Growing Gardeners initiative that helps children understand the plant world.

“The children kept one of the seeds and grew it at nursery for everyone to see,” said nursery manager Jenni McDougall.

“They have been watering it every day and watching it grow very tall.”
