Once again, great fun was had by the Gardening Club members when we visited the Nursery owned by Mr and Mrs Geddis. We were able to see their preparations for the new season and hear how this busy nursery is managed at this time of the year.
Shamrock growing is in full swing and we were shown the work that is required to have these plants ready for St Patrick's Day. The club members have been challenged to care for their own shamrock plant and have this ready for a competition in March. The children were amazed by the large glasshouses that need maintained both to withstand winter conditions and also to prepare for the growing season in the spring.
The visit finished with a welcome hot chocolate and treats provided by Mrs Geddis. Needless to say, the children are very keen to repeat the visit later in the year to see the Nursery in full production.
A huge thanks to the parents who provided transportation and also to the Geddis family for their great welcome and tour!
