Gardening Week with Ms. Marry – Day 4

Today Ms. Marry is taking a look at some of the different fruits that grow in Ireland. Some fruits can be quite easy to grow as well as being great for our health.  Have a look at today’s videos and, if you can, maybe try and grow your own fantastic fruits.




Here are some examples of fruits in the garden:


Peter’s Pavlova!!

Peter made pavlova using strawberries that we grew in class as part of the Incredible Edibles programme. When lockdown started in March Peter brought the strawberries home and has looked after them since.
