Gardening Club News – Autumn Term 2018

The school gardeners have been busy harvesting fruit and vegetables this autumn. They collected boxes of apples and pears from our fruit trees and they each chose an apple to eat for their snack.

The gardeners also put bulbs and winter pansies into some planters to cheer up some of the garden space. They learnt how to plant the bulbs the correct way up deep in the soil, and then put the beautiful pansies into the top part of the planter.  Everything was watered thoroughly so that the plants have the best chance of growing.

The next job in the garden was to get busy with lots of weeding in our raised beds.  The gardeners also planted even more bulbs.  Hopefully we shall have lots of colour in the garden in the spring!
