The Garden Museum in London has a special after-school bulb planting master class on Wednesday September 30 2009 from 4 - 6pm - and it's free.

This is a great activity to flag up with parents and a chance for your pupils to have some outdoor science fun.

The masterclass, run by The Mail on Sunday gardener Martyn Cox, will include children decorating their own pot and then planting narcissus and crocus bulbs ready to bloom in the spring. They will also be able to plant bulbs in the Garden Museum's garden.

For more details of the event and to reserve a place, contact The Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Centre, telephone 020 7915 4776.

Take a look at the Garden Museum's Learning section on their website for information about their education programme.

You can also get on the Garden Museum's mailing list to be kept up-to-date with events.
