Teach-in for Teachers

A group of teachers from the South East spent a day with Chris Young from the Royal Horticultural Society at Charlton Manor Primary School this week for a Gardening Workshop. The school garden has a heated greenhouse, raised beds, fruit trees and soft fruit patch so provided a wide range of plants for the teachers. This school also keeps bees and chickens. They were able to see crops being grown for the Miracle-Growers Display at Chelsea Flower Show next May. A local fox has caused problems and necessitates some stout wire mesh for protection. Outside the broad beans and cabbages being grown in different composts are doing well with broad beans already in flower. Under glass carrots, Swiss chard and mildew resistant Onion Santero are growing well and should be well advance by the third week of May.
