We had a great day in the garden yesterday, despite the larrapping rain. Jools gave us an excellent lesson in tending our young trees ; Pruning back to ensure a good shape and healthy growth. Beau gave us a lesson on buglife – showing us a cluster of spider eggs and a grub nestling in the compost. He also told us about an amazing YouTube video on creating mini biospheres. You can find it by searching Life in jars?
And did you know, lichen is not a plant or a moss but an organism made up of alga and fungus growing together. There is a picture below of some lichen we found in the garden.
Come along next week and join us for gardening, bugs, tea and cake.
