Gardening Tips for schools with vegetable gardens

To Do this Month

Plan! This is a great month to decide where and what you are going to grow this year. If you are just starting out  check out our website for handy guides. 

 Consider building or buying some raised vegetable beds. 

 There’s still time to spread well-rotted manure or compost on your vegetable beds and cover them down with black polythene to start warming them up for spring sowing.


Start collecting old plastic bottles and containers as cloches and covers, and collect toilet roll inserts to use as pots for sowing. 

 Order your seeds, onions sets and seed potatoes.
