YOUNGSTERS have been getting green fingers in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The children at Bumpkins ­Nursery in Whaddon have planted daffodil bulbs as part of fund-raising activity, Mini Pots of Care.

Each child has been given a mini pot in which to plant a daffodil bulb and will learn how to look after it.

General manager Vanessa Taylor said: "The children have really enjoyed planting the bulbs.

"The compost came flat-packed and the children had to add water to it so it would expand. They were fascinated by the ­science behind it."

When the daffodils bloom in spring the youngsters will be painting their pots before taking them home to somebody they care about in return for a small donation to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
