Welcome

Gardening Club

Gardening Club Wednesday 3.30-4.30pm


 Mrs Bright and Mrs Menzies are running the gardening club. It is open to Year 1 to Year 4 children who have a passion for growing things.

What we are planning to do........

Weed all of the beds in the allotment

Put black membrane down to stops the weeds

Plant a herb garden

Plant some flowers

Plant some fruit bushes and trees.

 

We are at present putting the allotment to sleep for the winter. Our new 'Bug Hotel' is fabulous and the herb garden is well established.

 

What grew well last summer radishes. beetroot, peas, strawberries and our favourites the raspberries. The rubarb was also delicious. Our lavender beds are certainly attracting the bees and the marigolds kept the pests away- this is called companion planting. What a lot there is to learn.

Watch this space, hopefully there will be plenty to eat this year.!
