Gardening Group

Yesterday, at TARAGGAN Educational Gardens and Nursery, our volunteers built a wigwam support and planted runner beans. They also planted courgettes and French beans. Thanks to John for all his help and for showing us the best way to utilise all the space on our plot. The carrots, onions and broadbeans are slowly starting to sprout and the fruit trees are all looking really good.

Our volunteers sowed the courgette seeds by planting them individually on their sides and spaced them out to give them room to grow. They have also been covered to encourage growth and to stop the slugs and snails snacking on them. The French beans have been sown outside as there is no longer a risk of frost. They have been planted directly in the ground and should be ready to harvest in around forty-five days’ time.
