Chelsea Countdown

School children and school gardening clubs are busy growing vegetables and herbs to be part of the Horticultural Trades Association Back Garden, 40 Sunbury Road, exhibit in the Great Pavilion Chelsea Flower Show in May. It will included several different kinds of mint in tea pots (for Mint Tea!). The tricky bit is getting a rooted cutting to grow out of the spout. Care has to be taken when watering too, because there is no drainage hole in the base of tea pots. The need for water is gauged by weight, light weight means dry, so needs watering, heavy equals wet and no need to water.
