SOME hortiulturalists swear blind their crops grow better to the sound of music, and that seems to be the case at Whalley’s Oakhill College.

The Oakhill Association previously funded raised planting beds at the college, outside its music block. The beds were planted-up by Year 11 boys and the first crop of Arran potatoes was dug out last week and sampled by lucky pupils.

Maybe it was the music from the nearby classroom’s that helped, because not only have the potatoes cropped very well, but they tasted delicious.

We all know potatoes have eyes, but it seems thy have an ear for music too! And it looks like the pupils might also get a second crop of strawberries into the bargain.
