Gardening club have begun a new season outside with some clearing up of old leaves on the pathways, and planting some bright pansies in our spring flower bed.
We are also taking part in an interesting planting project from the East of England Apples and Orchards Project. This is a charity that helps to preserve local species of orchard fruit trees, and provides the trees free of charge to schools. We have extended our little orchard area by adding five apple varieties called Look East, Norfolk Dumpling, Red Falstaff, St Magdalen, and Pine Apple Russet, and 2 pear trees called Robin and Conference. We are looking after them carefully and hope to have a harvest in a year or so!
