Visiting Jenson’s Garden in Terrington St Clement 22.03.16
After an early lunch we left school in the minibus at 1pm to go to Jenson’s garden. Once there we planted lots of different seeds.
In straight rows in the raised beds in the poly tunnel we planted carrots, parsnips, onions, radishes and dwarf French beans. In the seed trays we planted purple sprouting broccoli. We filled pots and planted pumpkins and corn on the cob. We then filled hanging baskets and planted cut and come again lettuce. We planted some seed potatoes in the garden.
We talked about what would happen to the seeds and the children decided they would need to be watered and have some sunlight and then they would grow. They watered the seeds carefully.
Jenson’s poly tunnel had lots of strawberry plants but no fruit yet and when we looked in the fruit cage the raspberries were only just coming into leaf – hopefully there will be strawberries and raspberries to eat next time we come!
There are lots of fruit trees in the garden: plum, cherry, apple (eaters and cookers) and pear. They do not have any leaves on yet, but we did find lots of buds.
After a busy afternoon we went back to school in the minibus. Click here to see the photographs.
