Children wanted to find the root of where vegetables come from, so their school created a gardening club.

The Muddy Boots club at Newtown Primary School, Queens Road, Gosport, has proved extremely popular.

The group started five years ago and grows a range of vegetable, including broccoli, beetroot and marrows.

Carol Edgar, club organiser, said: ‘I was shocked when pupils said they did not know where vegetables came from.

‘They have only seen them in the supermarkets.

‘So I took a small plot of garden at the school and started planting seeds so children could see how vegetables grow.

‘And since then the club has got bigger.’ Kids meet after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
