Wednesday 28th April day 3 #Nationalgardeningweek
one of the things i like best about gardening is growing plants from seeds and cuttings. everything from choosing seeds or taking cutting material to potting up or planting out a carefully nurtured plant fills me with a certain sense of satisfaction ( or smugness). I find the whole process of sowing seeds, waiting for the first signs of growth, watching the true leaves unfurl, pricking out individual seedlings into pots, and potting on till they reach their final resting place extremely satisfying
March and April are the main months to sow seeds but you can always find something to so each month in the next few weeks we will be sowing our beans and cubits (cucumbers & squashes) these are fast growing tender plants that will ready to out in mid /late May when the nights have warmed up and risk of frost has passed.

Greening Stoke is a project run in partnership between Festival Stoke and Letting in the Light. We are based in Stoke-on-Trent.
We are started this adventure in January 2021 in the middle of a national lockdown. Gradually, as things begin to open up, close down and then open up again, Rachel and Anne abided by all the Covid-19 Government guidance, worked in a socially distanced way, to prepare and maintain Plot 33 so that they were eventually able to invite the community to work with them.
