Spring 2014

We are having a busy 2014.  Over the early part of the year we sowed lots of seeds and peas and sweetcorn for our veg beds.  Any produce we had left over we put into a Plant Sale in May.  It was very successful and we made just under £40!

Earlier in the year we received information about a competition, District Schools in Bloom, and the Eco School team thought we should enter.  We are entering the Fabulous Flowers category where we need to plant different varieties of colourful flowers and show how they were grown.  So we have sowed white alyssum, blue lobelia, red/pink petunias and French marigolds in order to deck out our class flower beds in blocks of colour.  The seedlings are coming on and we hope they will be big enough for the competition judges in July.
