RHS Campaign for School Gardening - ‘Big Seed Sow’

As part of the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, two ‘Big Seed Sow’ sessions were held with children from Portland Bill class on Thursday 23rd March, rather than 27 March-2 April because of Easter Break.


They sowed Giant Single Sunflower, Trailing Nasturtium, Calendula (Pot Marigold), Red and Green Lettuce and Sweet Basil


All these plants are edible 😀 so the children can look forward to tasting them in a couple of months.  Hopefully we will have some plants to sell to raise funds for school gardening as well.


Thanks to Christine Rogers and Janet Priest for leading these sessions with the children.
