Gardening at Low Hall Nursery School
In the main garden area we continue to work on our new fruit garden, and extend our wildlife garden around the pond area. Pond dipping is very popular and we have lots of newts, toads and tadpoles in the spring. We check for bugs in our bug hotel and have lots of fun spinning our tumbling composter and searching for spiders inside.
The fruit garden has a digging area, where children love to dig, water the plants and splash in the muddy water.
We have two apple trees and a pear tree and we look forward to our first harvest later in the year. Other fruits growing in the garden are blackberries, boysenberries, raspberries, strawberries and redcurrants.
We grow flowers and herbs such as blue and white anemones, marigolds, teasel, sedum, geraniums, alliums, Michaelmas daisies, crocuses, daffodils, tulips, primroses, curry plant, rosemary, thyme, and jasmine.
We also have troughs in the main playground where we enjoy growing peas, herbs and salads. We can pick these as soon as they are ready to eat at snack time or take home.
Please come and have a look at the garden next time you are at the Nursery School, and tell us what you like to grow.
