Plymouth Growing Futures
Gardening updates and news
With the weather cooling down it time to think about autumn planting. The nice thing about autumn bulb planting is that although we feel a loss for the end of summer it encourages us to look forward to the next spring. At the moment we have garlic, Japanese onion sets and allium. We will get a few more daffodils and tulips too.
Some winter salad had been resown and is growing well.
Next week is Freshers week. PGF has a stall in the Rolle Marquee on Tuesday.
I will be out and about with the Centre for Sustainable Futures promoting sustainability to the students so please pass on to your new students about PGF and how they can get involved.
Gardening will back to 12.30 -2.00 Wednesday and Thursday from next week.
