This year the time will be 10-11am Sunday mornings as planting and watering mid-afternoon last year didn't do the plants any favours. The plan was to do a mainly edible garden to engage children with plants and food. I was aiming to build up the area around the fig tree roots with herbs etc to have a more permanent plants to protect the roots.
