The Schools Competition theme is ‘Vegetable Planting’ and we have lots of goodies to give away.
Spring is in the air, the plants in the garden are coming back to life, the wildlife is becoming active and hopefully the worst of the weather is behind us. Now is an ideal time to start planting.
For this months competition we are giving away some brilliant planting kits and a selection of vegetables to grow, which will get your school garden off to a great start.
Growing potatoes is something that every child enjoys from delving in the lovely moist compost to plant the seed potatoes to looking for ‘treasure’ at harvest time. Rhubarb is an easy plant to grow and maintain and available in different varieties, we have included two varieties here so that you can compare them. Garlic is another easy plant to grow and all the more interesting as it’s the main ingredient of everybody’s favourite Garlic Bread.
To enter all you need to do is to find three signs of spring where you are and then tell us what they are as well as what is your favourite thing about spring, be imaginative it could be something that happens, or something that you do, as well as a plant, bird or animal.
