Tiptoe through the bluebells in Rosewell

Published on


Well done to all the pupils at Rosewell and St Matthew's schools who planted 5,000 bluebell bulbs in a morning recently.

The hard-working children got digging in the local park to create an area near the school which will be awash with colour by spring.


They were helped by our Rangers Jo Cooke and Alan Krumholds who helped with the planting and kept the spirits up as the rain fell.


The planting is among a range of local gardening initiatives. The pupils are also currently taking part in a competition by the community council to design a maze.


The winning design will be created outside the school with trees from the Woodland Trust.


Rosewell also has a magic garden in the school.
