GREEN-fingered youngsters are holding a competition to see who can grow the best tomato plant.

Children from Beighton nursery and infant school in Sheffield potted seeds in class then took the pots home for replanting in the hope they would bear fruit.

Beighton Environment Group supplied seeds and labels for the project.

Anne Chipchase, school headteacher, said: “We encourage health eating and youngsters growing their own food whenever they can.

“The children were really excited by the whole experience and are now having a competition to see whose tomato plant will grow the strongest.

“Beighton Environment Group were fantastic with the whole project.”
