Ann explaining how to plant our bulbs

Ann explaining how to plant our bulbs

It was bulbs all round this week!

After a quick check on our salad leaves from last week (all germinated and looking good!) we got to work on planting our spring bulbs.

In conjunction with The London Children’s Flower Societies Spring Bulb Growing Competition, each child planted a daffodil and hyacinth bulb in a pot for the competition. We learnt from Ann about the two different ways of planting the bulbs. The spares we put in our flowerbeds.

We also managed to put in a few onions bulbs- Radar to be exact. They were kindly donated by Howard and Allan from the Observer who called in for a visit today too. We had to admit defeat in the corn growing area. Theirs was much better!

A long wait to see the results of today’s planting but a good comparison with our salad from last week. The children are beginning to get a better understanding of the different ways of growing different things.

Hi Little Green Fingers (might have to call you LGF for short). Great to see you all last week, hope the Radar grow OK. Have some autumn broad beans over if you would like to grow some? And lots of sunflower seed for next summer too, check out http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/allotment if you want some. Hope everyone enjoying their half term…
