At school each class (primary) has been given a small 'veg bed'. Something the teachers and children can work on together to grow veg/flowers. I'd say it's about 2m x 1m (or thereabouts!). I know NOTHING about growing plants/flowers/veg etc. All the other teachers are talking about what they're going to put in theirs and I feel like my class is slightly disadvantaged having me tell them what to do! What it is easy to grow and maintain? When should I start? Ideally I would like things that will grow by the end of the academic year so that children get the chance to take what we've grown home. Help!
