Gardening continues, whatever the weather!

February 2021

Despite some extreme weather conditions we have continued to grow vegetables in the poly tunnel. Kale, cauliflower, carrots, herbs and onions have all been harvested and used for meals in the house.

We have been busy planting trees and have so far planted 30 of the 100 we received, including wild cherry, oak, field maple, rowan, apple, hawthorn, dogwood and elder.

Following all the hard work in the garden work last year, we won the Level 4 RHS Schools Garden Award and will be rewarded with £150 worth of plug plants in April. These will include lots more vegetables, salad plants and fruit.
