Horticulture Options group

Well we have had a productive time on the allotment this year.Our greatest success has been growing onions, courgettes the size of marrows and cucumbers in our greenhouse. We have also grown potatoes (which got hit by blight over the summer) rhubarb, redcurrants,gooseberries and broccoli. Our courtyard has looked lovely with the geranium plants that we grew on from cuttings. The herb plants and lavender have now established in some of our new pots.

This Autumn we have plans to offer strawberry plants for sale, grow our own herb pots and continue to develop our allotment including the bug house. I have now been given some tiles to provide a roof for it and we have got rid of the wasps nest in the plot! Our horticulture option is now on a Tuesday and I am pleased to welcome back some of last years group plus a few new faces.
