Feb 2013 - Polytunnel / an Pollathullán

Below are some pictures of the polytunnel beds taken towards the end of Feb 2013 - some have had quiet an amount of attention and others are waiting to start

The first photo is of the bed inside the door of the polytunnel to the right and the order of the rest of the photos follows around the polytunnel in an anti-clockwise direction.

 Leaba 1 - Rang 3
Polytunnel raised bed 1, Rang 3
The bed is planted with tulips, and daffodils.  The contents of the seed trays are listed below, each tray contains seeds planted by two students.  With a little luck the students will be able to bring home their produce before the summer holidays.  They have already brought home some strawberry plants.  The Rang 3 outside bed will be planted with some of the same plants, this will allow students to compare and contrast the results of outdoor and indoor growing conditions .

  2. Spring onions
  3. Coriander
  4. Lettuce
  5. Basil
