Gardening Spot~2

The voluntary work as a gardener with the schools has really taken off, i have been so busy the last few weeks i have neglected my own plants,

someone has taken it upon themselves to water my conifers in my front balcony that the poor thing got so waterlogged it eventually died.

to be honest its my own fault i kept saying i will fix it later on and I’m afraid later on never came 😦 , my lesson now learned i went about

making sure my other plants where ok. When that was done and dusted  I  prepared the soil in the troughs for the winter onions and garlic,

I’m beginning to think I’m going to need more troughs. I also purchased 2 portable greenhouse’s from Woolworth a few weeks back they where

in the sale for £2 each,  I couldn’t resist at that price so i got one for myself and 1 for my boys school that i garden at, although i haven’t

got around to building them yet but they are on my to do list for this weekend so i will see how i get on.

My sons school had a health and eco week this week and on Wednesday they had stalls with information on these topics

along with the fire brigade which the children always enjoy because they get to look around the fire engines :).

The nursery had a stall which is the one i helped out on along with another 2 parents, we where selling the nursery children’s

first crop of vegetables which included potatoes, beetroot, lettuce, red onions and of course some of the seed pots that

the children sowed on Monday. The stall made £55 at the end of the morning with some vegetables left over but i was informed

the teachers would buy the rest bringing the total up higher. here was also someone from the bio diversity there who was showing

the children how to do hardwood cuttings, i managed to get one and my sons came home with one each so now i have 4 🙂

sorry i can’t remember the name of the cutting just now all i remember is it produces a beautiful purple flower. The nursery

teacher also gave us some ox-eye daisy and red campion seed pots for helping out so i can’t wait too see them in bloom next year

as they are beautiful wild flowers.
