Mary, Mary, quite contrary

How does your garden grow?

With silver bells and cockleshells

And pretty maids all in a row.

Here at Aston Childcare we love our gardening. We are currently watching our beanstalks grow with interest. My 2 after schoolers enjoyed measuring the height of them after school today and they were an impressive 75 centimetres and 1 metre 8 centimetres respectively!

The mint we planted back in October last year is doing fantastically well. Next to the mint sits the rosemary which seems very hardy and smells divine.

The lavender on the table that we love to add to our sensory playdough sessions is coming to the end of its flowering season but has in past months been brilliantly coloured.

And finally, we have a plant marker all ready for our sunflowers that we planted back in March but as yet they haven’t made an appearance, we are hoping they will any week now! Stay tuned…!
