Give the weeds some welly at our Secret Garden maintenance day – Sunday 8th October

Garden-clip-art-border-free-clipart-images-7We would be delighted if you could join us on our SECRET GARDEN MAINTENANCE DAY on SUNDAY 8th OCTOBER 2017  to help us give the weeds some welly!
A wet summer has produced a lot of growth, there is bindweed to battle, bramble and willow to tame, raised beds to weed and repair and redundant materials to clear in a prime area that lends itself to a sheltered learning space.
Please put this date in your diary and bring along a few hand tools if you can. If you can’t manage the whole day then come along for a while, even for a couple of hours as definitely a case of the more the merrier – experienced or not!
Children are welcome to come along and help too, there will be some fun activities to keep them occupied!

We’ll put on refreshments and snacks to keep everyone going so come along and help to give this lovely space a big push in the right direction. Get in touch (see contacts below) so we know how many biscuits to bake……….

Please let us know whether you are able to come along by contacting us at;

Gardening club

It has been great to get gardening club up and running again.  We hope that you have enjoyed seeing some new flowers in the playground, we have been very busy planting them!  We have planted dwarf daffodils, hyacinths and primrose in the planters in the back playground.  These looked lovely when they were first planted but unfortunately some of them have dried up over the holidays.  We think that maybe the pallet planters aren’t deep enough for some flowers to grow in and so we are having a think about what we could plant in them next.  We also planted some daffodils and anemone near to the entrance of the front playground.  Hopefully these will do better!

Today we started work on the planters in the Secret Garden, these need lots of weeding and new compost added in preparation for planting vegetables.  Hopefully we will have our first vegetables planted by the middle of May.
