Garden Diary

March 2017

Spring has arrived and all the bulbs planted in the autumn are now starting to bloom. 


Peas and beans are now strong enough to be transplanted outside.  We have also sown baby carrots, potatoes and pumpkin seeds and have sourced sticks from around the school grounds for our peas to start growing up.  In addition we planted some more fruit bushes awarded to us from the RHS for achieving Level 3.  This included rhubarb, raspberries, blackcurrants and a tayberry bush.


We also had a good maintenance session throughout the garden – cutting back, weeding, thinning out and watering of all our seedlings.





February 2017


A good winter tidy up in the garden this month, with the addition of two hedgehog homes the children built.  The compost bins had produced some lovely rich compost which we have used in the indoor raised beds for our peas to go in.  Lots of strawberry runners also needed to be planted out into a new larger raised bed.  Lettuce and tomato seeds have been sown inside.

January 2017


Busy looking after the wildlife in the cold weather by making bird feeders using cooking apples and sunflowers seeds.  Planting is also underway in the polytunnel of peas, beans, tomatoes and onions.
