Before the holidays, we reported that Year 5 had been planting broad bean seeds in the greenhouse – you can see how small they were as they started to shoot. While they may not really be “magic beanstalks”, the second picture shows just how much they have grown in just a few short weeks. Today our gardener, Mr Young, helped the children plant them out in a raised and prepared bed in our orchard. He showed them how to prepare a hole for each plant and how to remove them carefully from their pots without disturbing the roots. The children have carefully labelled their plants so that we can see whose grows the highest and produces the most beans!
