On the move

Members of school gardening clubs should see quite a change in their crops on return from the Easter Holidays. Here are a couple of photographs to show the stages of development just before Easter weekend at two of the schools growing plants for Chelsea Flower Show 2015. (Top Picture) At Corelli College their greenhouse has less heat this year, but even so nasturtiums are well established and the broad bean trial is developing nicely. They also have sweet peas growing for the Mr. Fothergills Seeds sponsored Capel Manor College Competition on 18th July 2015. (Below) At Galleywood in the twin skin polycarbonate greenhouse garden peas have already set pods and still have plenty more flowers opening. They may have to go outside to hold development back. Pots of carrots and the two compost bags with turnips and autumn onion sets are growing well and with another seven weeks should have lovely young roots of harvestable size by the third week of May. Potato Jazzy also have 15 cms of top growth and now need potting on so should have new potatoes in May. The Swiss chard has been slow to germinate, but again should grow fast now in warmer temperatures and brighter days. Watch this space for more news here on the link-up between schools and fourteen Sunrise Senior Living Residents across the country.
