SOUTHSEA GREEN: Making plans for spring
As a novice gardener myself andÂ trying to encourage young people to get outside and embrace growingÂ and learning, the Catch22 '˜bed' plot has been a haphazard, yet brilliantÂ experiment inÂ the past two years.
WeÂ had a '˜plant it and see what happens' approach to growing; from monster marigolds to substantial spring onions (which turned out to be garlic), with a good dose of enthusiasm and some top tips from our neighbours, it's been a great opportunity to learn.
Spring is here and we have a plan.Â WeÂ hopeÂ to get to grips with growing more fruit and veg. Redcurrants, blueberries and cranberries are on the wish-list, plusÂ radishes, differentÂ lettucesÂ and Â tomatoes.
But the community garden isn't just about growing. WithÂ the current Southsea Greenfingers workshops and our forthcoming seventh birthday party, there are various ways to get involved. Pop in on April 21.
