The Garden in June

Welcome to Holy Trinity School Garden in June. To think that less than a year ago this was an overgrown wilderness, long grass, brambles and ragwort. The Dorset Cereals Garden is now well established. The vines are growing healthily and not a single perennial plant has been lost.

The herb bed has been a great success needing little attention as most of the plants are derived from hardy natives that are used to fending for themselves.

The raised bed area has been just right for new growing talents.
This is not an uncultivated bed, but one where the crop of potatoes has been harvested, cooked and sampled by the class! Well done Mrs Palmer!
The bare tree has succumbed to disease but the corner beyond will become the 'Garden of Memories' in the next 6 months.

Raised Bed area, dark plants along the edging are thyme which we hope will establish itself.

Yellow hosepipe, always a necessity in the garden, especially as the tap is 100 metres plus away.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to the garden please keep an eye on us as we continue our development of the area to include a wildlife pond with dipping platform, hopefully to be installed in the summer holidays.
