On Thursday we had our second garden club.
We cleared out the strawberry beds of last year’s foliage and we took out all the seedlings to new pots for roots establishment.
While turning the soil we have found some visitors not necessary invited- Weevils. This little insect is loving strawberry plants and by munching on the roots its killing the plant. We have removed as much larva as we could and by doing it we have reduced the population for sure.
If you think you could join us on ANY Thursday in the next 14 weeks,no matter for how little time, please pop in next Thursday between 9.30am and 12pm to see what we do and fill in some forms. Club cannot continue if we won’t have the 8 registered parents. We could really use some help in the school garden and it is for the benefit of all the children.
We hope to see you next week for some weeding and beds preparing for new planting.
