Planting in the Greenhouse!

After a meeting with a few new volunteers, we spent some time in the Greenhouse organising supplies and seeding a few plants.

As we’re still without much workspace (the previous occupant had mostly gutted the room, removing most of the furniture), there’s not much set-up in the conventional sense. For now, it’s more about moving the supplies into the room and starting seeding a few things while we await new tables and workspaces.

A few dyer’s greenweed seeds.


Dyers Greenweed was up first today. The seeds themselves are quite colourful, which was a little distraction. It’ll be interesting to see if the plants vary any in colour because of the seeds.

Then it was time to sow a little more weld. While it’s growing well in the garden, we’re re-sowing everything to document how it grows on a weekly basis.

Hundreds of weld seeds. Hopefully, our luck with it will continue!


If you’re interested, we’ll be having another information session about volunteering on 11 October at 14:00. Meeting in the Main Building of the Edinburgh College of Art before heading to the garden and greenhouse! If you can’t make it but would like to be involved, please see the relevant post under the About Us section. 

The day’s seeding.
