SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT
Dealing with plants
- Tomato plants with problems: weather conditions? lack of water? How can we save them??
If a plant stays in one pot for too long, it becomes pot-bound. This means that its roots fill the pot and they can’t take food or water from the compost, so it starts to die.
If our plant becomes pot-bound, we have to spread out its roots and pot it on. It might not survive, but…
Sowing red cabbage seeds
What we need:
– containers with drainage holes or pots
– seed compost
– selection of seeds
– a mini-greenhouse
1. Fill a container with the compost. Use something to press the surface and make it flat
2. Sow the seeds.
3. Sprinkle more compost over them under they are covered with just a very thin layer.
4. Spray the seeds.
