The Grow Zone and our school grounds, just like our gardens at home, are not looking their best at this time of year. Everything has died down and is looking a bit sad. We like to leave the old flower heads on all of the plants for as long as possible as this is where all the seeds are made. We let many of these plants self-seed in our wildlife area, so they grow new plants next year.

The Green Teams helped to begin to dig up all the old plants in the Grow Zone area and to dig over the beds. They also collected up all the old bits and pieces and helped to make the area look tidy for the winter.

Some other Green Team members learnt hope to use secateurs  and shears safely before tackling some of the plants in the courtyard…

A great job done by all!!
