We’ve been extremely busy in the garden over the last month. Our gardening classes took part in Gardening Scotland.
We entered three containers – Blackburn Support Centre, the Portobello Project and Cedarbank School, two pallet gardens – Cedarbank School and Pinewood Day Centre and along with Oatridge and Perennial, Gardeners’ Royal Benevolent Society we entered a show garden.
Here are the students from Pinewood Day Centre preparing their garden. The design involved an old drawing board – on one side was a drawing of the plan of the garden they would like to create and on the other the finished garden.
The students planted and drew the design themselves.
Placed the pots into the frame on the design board and on the other side wrote down the names of the plants.
Julie and Gillian from Suntrap helped to set it up on site at Gardening Scotland.
