ARE YOU GOING TO BE OUR WINNER THIS YEAR? 

 

 

This year would you please enter the swan gourd growing competition?


In April you will be given a plant to grow on mum and dad's allotment which will be a swan shaped gourd when it gets bigger.  

 

You will be given full instructions on how to grow it when you collect your plant from Mike.

 

You can't eat gourds but you can dry them out and then paint them in whatever colours you like and they keep for ages.

 

See the pictures below. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They will be judged in September for the prettiest, biggest and most unusual and there will be good prizes for the winners.

 

Water them well, keep weeds away from them and watch them form. Good fun!

 

Mum and /or Dad can collect your gourd plant from the meeting on Monday 30th April but if that's not possible, don't worry I'll save you one, just let me know somehow that you want a plant and I'll put your name on it. Mike.
