A couple of weeks ago the gardening club launched a competition at Potton Middle School to see who could grow the tallest Sunflower. Many of the seeds have germinated and are now growing really well. Contestants have until Sunday 15th July to nurture their sunflowers. The winner will be announced the following week.
The Gardening club have spent many hours weeding and digging, to prepare the raised bed for a summer of growing. Strawberries have been planted in the raised bed and many interesting vegetables have been germinated indoors. The students have made a great start building runner bean frames.
The young gardeners would be very grateful to receive any plants, pots, gardening equipment and compost that might be looking for a new home!
