Gardening Club, Week two
These are the flowers planted in our horseshoe raised beds:
All of the above flowers are annual, bee and wildlife friendly. Their seeds can also be harvested during early Autumn and replanted around the school. Once established they will flower from early spring through to very late summer, so there should be colour for the majority of the spring and summer months.
Please note, these seeds were picked by the children and placement was discussed so that taller flowers are in the middle section, gradually shrinking in size around the edges to the fronts, so this will hopefully be very aesthetically pleasing!
