During the autumn term, our Junior Gardeners learned, amongst other things, how to save seeds from different plants. We saved a number of marigold seeds from plants in the garden that had been planted before the summer. This spring, we sowed these into seed trays, and then as they grew bigger planted them out into individual pots.
Last week Tom, our school gardener, used those plants as part of the beds in the quad – and we have to say they look very good.
The pictures below show the plants being sown and potted on.
