This afternoon, the year 3 gardeners helped to tackle the fruit bush border. There was lots of clearing and weeding to be done and the team really got their backs in to it. We managed to clear out most of the weeds in preparation for covering the border with a new layer of weedproof membrane and bark chippings next week.
We will then be able to plant our new fruit bushes, some of which came courtesy of the Morrison’s Let’s Grow vouchers.
The children had great fun finding all the different mini-beasts that were lurking in the fruit border. Among them were ladybirds, caterpillars, slugs, beetles, earwigs, spiders and even some tiger worms!
