Thousands dig deep to plant 100,000 snowdrops

4 March 2014


School children and local communities are digging deep to support The Royal Parks at a time when budgets have been cut by 25% by planting 100,000 snowdrop bulbs this March.

Thanks to the fabulous fundraising of two local schools – Wetherby Preparatory School and Knightsbridge School - their students, as well as children from local state schools and special needs schools, can benefit from this amazing planting and learning experience.

Jade from the Knightsbridge School said:

I think it’s cool that we are going to be planting snowdrops in Hyde Park, that lots of people and tourists are going to be looking at.”

This is the latest project in the Green Fingers in the Park programme, where wildflower bulbs are planted, engaging youngsters with the magic of the natural world, making Hyde Park more beautiful for visitors in early spring, whilst creating a valuable food source for early-flying pollinators.
