If you can't stand the heat get out in the garden

This week at WESC we planted the last of our strawberries into baskets.

They have been so popular with students and staff that we decided to plant more!

We started off combining perlite Multi purpose compost.

Making sure to break up any lumps!

Then we half filled the baskets.

Picked our strawberry plants, three per basket.

Planted the plants around the outside edge of the basket, gently firming in and watered well.

We hung them in the second polytunnel. Just in time for the sun.

Finally, the WESC wildflower meadow is really starting to establish and attracting lots of wildlife. 

Thank you to all who helped.
