Spring has certainly arrived at Shooters Grove. Here and there pockets of vibrant colour can be seen.
The hard work of last Autumn has paid off and what seemed like empty troughs, pots and baskets just a couple of weeks ago, is now alive with an explosion of flowers
From the electric blue Iris to the palest of creamy-white Crocus, this blast of colour has the power to bring a smile to your face on even the dreariest of March mornings.
Today has been good to the Busy Beez Gardening Club. It stayed dry throughout the session. Sunny even. The younger ones set to tidying up the carpark bed, and the Y6's began sowing seeds.
We have a great many seeds to sow, a lot of which will require direct sowing where they are to either flower or harvest.
Today we sowed French Beans, Lettuce, Marigolds and Nasturtiums. The latter two are planned as 'companion plants'.
The beans were sowed into toilet paper tubes, and we discussed how certain plants dislike root disturbance, and how the tubes will be planted along with the young bean plants, when the time comes.
