A group of nursery children did some planting at a new homes development in Watton to mark National Children's Gardening Week.
David Wilson Homes invited 10 children from Happyfeet Day Nursery to the company's Wayland Fields development in Watton just ahead of the week, which runs from May 29 to June 6.
The youngsters took turns digging and planting a variety of flowers, with assistance from Paul Baines at Baines Landscaping.
The developer sourced children’s gardening equipment including trowels, forks, watering cans and gloves, which were donated to the nursery after the planting session.
Heidi Billing, nursery director said: “The children really enjoyed the experience and we are already looking into having an allotment to continue the experience of being able to plant and grow seeds.”
