Gardening

We need to get the spring flowering bulbs in this month so our main job this week has been to prepare the planters outside classrooms. Weeds were removed, existing blubs were carefully removed and set aside for future planting, and soil was refreshed. Sarah has ordered two tonnes of compost which with can use to refresh the existing soil in the planters and then we can get the bulbs in. We also started work on clearing the polytunnel which was, in the words of one of the year 6’s, ‘a jungle’. When the polytunnel is sorted we will get the winter salads in along with onions and some winter cabbage. There is a lot to do.
