Planting for Potato Council 2015

On the 10th March we planted our potatoes for the competition 

We planted our potatoes on the 10th March, and have to harvest them on the 16th June. The competition sent us two varieties, the first being 'Rocket' and the second 'Luciole'. We will now tend to the potatoes until June, and hope we get lots to weigh!

The competition sent us a spare tuber so the children can do a bottle experiment. They have placed it in an old pop bottle with the top cut off, which is half filled with compost. It has been placed in class 4O/S. They will watch it grow in the bottle over the next 7 to 8 weeks. The idea of it being to watch how a potato grows
