Gardening Indoors

Week 2 of Gardening Club and because of the bad weather we had to stay indoors. We planted seeds in pots  with the help of Mrs McDonald and  also spent time making posters.

The Gardening club is restarting for Primary 6 So far there are ten members and our Head gardeners Mrs McDonald and Mrs Sharp. We were pleased to see that the RHS Campaign for School Gardening have send us a Garden Planner for different Months. Here are some suggestions for May:

  •  Sow some lettuce and radish.
  • Thin out seedlings sown outdoors if necessary.
  •  Plant out seedlings from earlier sowings once large enough.
  • Protect French beans, early potatoes and pumpkins if frost threatens.
  • Earth up early potatoes.

The Garden Gnomes

Last week the gardening club started up again for the summer term. Ten willing helpers from Primary 6,along with Mrs Sharp and Mrs McDonald, tackled the weeding in the John Muir garden. The garden has been out of bounds for about a year due to the pitches being laid in the field behind the school. Can you imagine a year’s worth of weeds? It was not a pretty sight! Well done to all the workers! This year the garden club members have chosen a new name. They are to be called ‘The Garden Gnomes’. We hope we can work some magic and make the garden beautiful again.

The Green Fingers Gardening Club

Wednesday 6 October is the last day of the Gardening Club for this year. The nine gardening club pupil members have worked really hard over the spring, summer and autumn months to keep the John Muir Garden in tip- top condition. The planters at the front of the school have also been tended by the pupils and have made a lovely display for visitors throughout the summer months. On Wednesday, 29 September we had our first rained off day so with direction from Mrs McDonald we spent our time picking carrots that we had grown in a planter and then making and eating delicious carrot soup. It was truly yummy! I would like to thank all the Gardening Club members for all their efforts this year. They have been extremely dedicated in their work. Many thanks from Mrs Sharp
