Gardening with the RHS

This Term we are focusing on fruit click here to find out how our orchard is progressing

Perfect for Pollinators

We learnt about pollination, how we need bees to pollinate our fruit crops. We sowed hardy annuals in pots to plant out near our fruit crops.

Strawberry Patch Maths

How many strawberry plants do we need to make a strawberry patch? We measured out our plot, worked out the spacing between each plant and planted up the strawberries.

Travelling food

We posed the question “Where does most of our fruit come from?” We looked at the food miles of fruit grown in the world and compared that to locally grown produce.
