The Summer Season is a very busy time for Gardening Club. We have been busy planting Impatiens, Busy Lizzie and some Marigolds. The hot weather has also meant extra watering!
We have begun our summer planting by planting fuscia plants. These should hopefully come back every year and can grow into pretty shrubs with lots of flowers.
We’ve been busy with more planting. Today we finished planting our Fuscia plants and we added Nicotianas to our wooden planters.
More spring planting
We took part in Morrison’s Good to Grow scheme and we received these hanging planters and compost. We used them to plant some pansies.
Group A were busy planting Primulas in our wheelbarrow.
Clear up ready for spring
We have continued getting our planters ready for spring. Group B dug up all the weeds that have grown and put fresh compost into the planter.

Transplanting the sunflower seeds
Planting sunflower seeds
Morrison’s Cardiff Bay kindly donated sunflower seeds as part of their “Seeds of Hope” programme. We planted them in cups provided by them and when they are big enough to handle we will transplant them.
Our new gardening club members have been busy tidying up ready for winter. They dug up weeds and the dead marigolds.
The sunflower seedlings have now grown big enough to transplant. We filled a trough with compost and gently transplanted the seedlings. We can’t wait to watch them grow.
Some of our Year 1 gardening club members have been busy planting geraniums. We were guessing what colours they might be.
