We took the opportunity and spent a delightful time in the garden laying our cardboard around the plants that our lovely working bee helpers had cleared around. Our class worked enthusiastically and our next step is to cover the cardboard with our mulch material. We learned about both plants and weeds and that weeds are plants in the wrong place.  We learned that we can suppress weed growth by blocking out the sunlight. As one of class commented: ‘we need to stop the weeds from having a  party at our place!’
