Today, our space seeds direct from the International Space Station itself arrived and were handed ever so carefully to Ms Shaw for planting later this week. Schools up and down the country who have been specially selected will be monitoring the difference between seeds looked after in space by Astronaut Tim Peake and seeds that have been waiting here on Earth.
You will be able to follow this experiment on our twitter feed and on our Space Seeds blog. It will run from April to May 2016.
