The second group from Crowcroft Park Primary School in Manchester came on site at RHS Tatton Park today. We had a lot to do - the mound of soil was still high, lots of plants needed new homes, panels needed painting and (most importantly) there was a worm count of 410 to beat!
After yesterday's task of completing the chimney pots, the garden took on a new shape today as many of the taller flowers were added, the turf was laid and the houses finished.
We gave up counting worms when we topped 600 - Tatton soil is obviously very healthy! Once the turf was laid we set to work creating our numbers - 27 on one side of the garden which relates to the earliest aerial image of Gorton Foundry in 1927 and 40 on the other side which links with the images of the council house crescent-shaped streets.
