Garden Club

Gardening Club is not running this term - we will update you if this changes 

Welcome to St Mary and St Chad's Garden Club


Wow! What a bumper crop we have had this year!  Mrs Deegan and our garden club have been busy harvesting. Beetroot has been tasted and sampled, the beds are being tidied and bulbs planted. We have even managed to sell some of the school grown produce - spinach and potatoes as well as salad, runner beans and broad beans during the summer fayre!


Great work to all our green fingered helpers!

Autumn is here and garden club have decorated a super hedgehog home. Ssshhhh, let's hope we get a visitor!

Garden club had a taste of our home grown produce. Blue potatoes!!

Garden club have been busy preparing our vegetable patch for planting. Spring is here!

It's that time again, we've planted our potatoes!!!



Each class has now planted their chitted potatoes into a grow bag ready for the competition.  Classes have chosen where to put their potato bags for the best result.  The competition is on to see who can win the prize for:


  • The biggest potato
  • The heaviest potato
  • The most potatoes
  • The smallest potato
  • The funniest looking potato


Here's a reminder of what the potato needs to grow - light, warmth, water and food.

We're in Bloom!!

We're all feeling very proud of all our hard work in Autumn.  Everything is in bloom! Spring has really sprung at St Mary's and St Chad's.

Fairy Hunting

Keep your eyes open for fairies and pixies who have been visiting our rock garden.  Those bulbs have really brightened it up!

Lots to do for Garden Club.

During Golden time we have been very busy getting out School Gardens looking fantastic!  Keep looking out to see what sort of Green Fingered activities we have been up to every week.

Children and staff would like to give a big thank you to Mrs Kate Seagrove and Hollybush Nurseries for providing the school with lots of fantastic gardening resources. Our Garden Club are looking forward to doing lots more growing this year. Keep a look out in the vegetable garden for some of our winter vegetables growing!
