Gardening Club – 23rd September 2019

We had a very enjoyable gardening Club today with Caroline. We had Peggy join us, as well as Pam Crossland’s friend which was nice. Today’s topic was Sunflowers. We got to look at them, feel them and pass them around. We arranged them in a vase and then started a conversation about them and what wildlife are attracted to them, their seeds and the benefits of Sunflower oil. We harvested some dried sunflower seeds, decorated some seed packets and stored them for next year when we can sow them in March or April. We did the same with sweet pea seeds too. We ended by tasting some sunflower seed bread with margarine on.
