The first group from Hanover visited Culpeper garden in June. Everyone loved the smells of bay, rosemary and coriander. We tasted mustard leaves. They look like lettuce, but are a surprise when you taste them - they are very fresh and sharp.
Charlotte recognised broad beans that were in flower, and Rojda explained why another broad bean plant already had fully grown beans on. Artie knew that onions grew underground - but no one recognised the potato plants!
Bertie learnt to grow seeds, carefully picking up one at a time. Charles, Jotha and Otto planted nasturtiums, spacing them out neatly in a line. Tommy said he didn't like carrots - I hope we can change his mind, when he tastes ones he has grown himself!
Everyone had a pot to take home - please remember to keep the soil moist, and let us know when the seedlings start to show.
