As reliable as any perennial in the gardening world, our Gardening Workshop Programme sprang into life with a session of pricking out seedlings. On a rainy day, the sunshine magically came out at the perfect time and residents spent a very happy, sunny afternoon in the greenhouse.

Some residents were without a doubt expert at dibbing and could teach our gardening team a thing or two. Others enjoyed the opportunity to try something new. One resident had grown flowers but not vegetables. There were plenty of seedlings to choose from – beans, beetroot, leeks, broccoli, peas, carrots, courgettes ….. we can hardly wait for summertime when these luscious vegetables will flourish in the allotments.
