Everything’s Coming up Roses – or Daffodils – at Moorside School

Moorside Community Primary School, Ovenden, planted hundreds of daffodil bulbs on Thursday 6 December 2018 that will show a sea of yellow when spring arrives.

The Junior Wardens planted the border areas along the driveway of the newly built school at Keighley Road, Ovenden, creating great displays that will go on for years to come.

With help from The North Halifax Partnership, CMBC Community Warden and Calderdale Council’s Safer Cleaner Greener Team who worked alongside the Junior Wardens from Moorside Community Primary School in the planting and management of their local environment.

Pete Oddy Area Manager –SCG Neighbourhoods Team said  “Spring bulbs can provide a really impressive, long lasting display which makes a fantastic addition to any mixed herbaceous border, providing a burst of colour weeks before the earliest perennials begin to emerge and prior to the season getting going as the daffodils begin to take centre stage. Planting a mixture of these early and later flowering bulbs means they can be enjoyed by all with a mass of colour right through until April.”
