R Green Gang Sessions Spring 2 - 2020

Monday 16th March

Our last session - for the foreseeable future..... Some of us planted up some more broad beans, others decided to get artistic and got on with making cards and pictures for Mothering Sunday. Stay safe.


Monday 9th March

It was very drizzly today......

We have sown some peas (early onward), dwarf beans (purple tepee? saved seeds) and runner beans (saved seeds). And a few sunflowers. R Green Gang who took their pots home, remember if you need new pots to grow them on, let me know...

BTW, I have a couple of chilli seedlings starting to sprout


Monday 2nd March

Today some of R Green Gang planted Zinnia seeds to bring home - "Easy to grow vividly bright orange flowers" so it says on the packet....

They need to be kept indoors,  moist but not soaking. They will hopefully start to shoot after 14 days. I shall let you know how mine get on.....

The rest of the crew planted cabbage seeds. If they grow we are going to let the butterflies have them!!


Monday 24th February

R Green Gang planted chives and sweet peppers or chilli peppers.....


Everyone has chives in the smaller pot. The larger pot will be sweet peppers or chilli peppers depending on what you chose.

Put the pots on a (light not all shade) windowsill (on old lid or saucer) and give them a bit of water - don't drown or float seeds away! Check regularly so they don't dry out completely.

Finger's crossed some grow....

R Plot Summer 18

A massive thank you to Mr Maher and the volunteers from TCV/friends/family for the incredible transformation on R Plot and the Polli:Nation Plot

And Mr Dempsey is doing a cracking job with roof repairs and fixing the guttering to collect rainwater. I think I am the only person waiting for it to pour down so we can check they work!!
