She said: "It's awful. I just can't believe smene culd d such a thing.
"We wanted t grw vegetables that we culd eat and ck and share tgether. The children had been watching their bulbs grw and develp. The plants were just abut t flwer. Once the flwers had finished we were ging t take ut the bulbs and grw herbs and carrts and ptates.
"The children had been lking at them every day when they went ut t play. They wuld shw their mums when the came t pick them up. It was very imprtant t them and they wn't understand why this has happened. But we wn't be beaten by this, we will carry n."
Pre-schl manager, Susan Yardy, said: "The children had wrked really hard and every day they wuld talk abut hw their plants were grwing. Their little faces were s sad. It desn't give yu any heart t d anything.
