PUPILS are keen to see how rocket seeds that have been in space will grow.

Wallisdean Infant School has been involved in the project organised by the Royal Horticultural Society Campaign for School Gardening. Some seeds were sent up to space with UK astronaut Tim Peake and the school learnt about how different life is for the astronauts on the International Space Station.

Now some of those seeds have been sent to the Fareham school where they will be grown alongside other rocket seeds which have not been into space.

The school has two packets but does not know which contains the space seeds.

The data they collect will be recorded on a national database.
