Toddlers in Sunninghill are turning their hands to straw bale gardening with the help of a new partnership.
Straw bale hire company PartyBales, based in Winkfield Row, has teamed up with Little Muddy Boots, a gardening club for toddlers in Sunninghill and Warfield.
This week, the toddlers witnessed seedlings starting to appear after sowing nasturtiums and wild flower seeds on the bales.
The bales were delivered to Little Muddy Boots in April and children quickly began learning about them. They have found out how they were made and then they watered and fertilised the bales in preparation for planting.
Hannah Brewer, founder of Little Muddy Boots, said: “When PartyBales offered to donate straw bales, I jumped at the chance so we could have a go at straw bale gardening. We can’t wait to see the end result.
“The children were so excited to see the straw bales when they arrived in our garden.”
