Pupils dig a lesson in wild blooms.
The youngsters from year four at Whitehouse Primary School visited Newham Grange Park, off Bishopton Avenue, to plant a variety of wildflower plugs.
Their teacher and head of science at the school, Linda James said: "They loved it.
"It was sunny but cold and we had to keep moving to keep warm, so we were really busy and ended planting about 600 bulbs.
"We will definitely come back when they are established so the children can see the results of their hard work."
Assisting the children were members of the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust, while the Friends of Newham Grange Park also planted 2,000 mixed bulbs, supplied by Stockton Council's Care For Your Area team.
The flowers included Lady's Smock, Cowslip, Ragged Robin and Hemp Agrimony while the local nature reserve officer also planted trees such as oak and rowan.
