A REGULAR day in the classroom turned out to be anything but for pupils at Binley Woods Primary School when TV presenter and gardener David Domoney paid them a surprise visit.
David, who is best known for co-presenting ITV’s Love Your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh, launched Hozelock’s Gardening for Life, a national campaign to encourage young people to get outside and get gardening.
Pupils were given tips and advice for growing their own plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables, and a range of Hozelock products.
“I’m urging the nation’s youngsters to step away from their smartphones and turn off their tablets and get involved with Hozelock’s Gardening for Life campaign,” he said.
“Gardening is a great hobby for people of all ages however, for children it’s particularly beneficial. It’s a fun, healthy activity plus the sense of satisfaction children feel when they watch something they’ve had a hand in growing is immeasurable.”
