Spring into Gardening

School Gardening Clubs need to get cracking now the days are getting longer and temperatures are slowly rising. Crops sown last autumn that have over wintered in greenhouses, polythene tunnels and cold frames will need attention. Broad beans and sweet pea seedlings grown cold can be harden to outdoor conditions in warmer parts of the country. We have already started to plant both kinds outside in Essex being careful not to tread about on the soil, because it is very wet and will go down hard if we walk about on it. Schools that have yet to sow sweet peas are advised to germinate seeds on damp kitchen towel in a plastic spread container and kept some where warm. You should see roots appearing in 4 to 7 days when they can be potted up in a Universal Compost and again kept warm until shoots appear through the surface. Once this happens they need to go on a window sill with maximum light through the day.
