Welcome to the 2014 version of Devonshire’s Itty Bitty Garden in the City. Below you will find a short summary of how to hook up the watering hoses.
Watering the garden
The hose tap is located at the front of the school between the primary yard and the front door of the school.
Take the hose that is hanging around the tap and coiled on the ground and pull it over to the corner of the primary yard fence. There you will find the beginning of the hose that runs along the Breezehill fence to the corner of the primary yard and to the garden.
Return to the tap and turn on the tap and switch the yellow valve into the down position. This will send water down to the nozzle located near the garden. The best time to water is in the morning. The water coming out of the tap is cold and will shock plants during the warmest time of the day. The second best time to water is in the evening.
Here are some photos of students in our Itty Bitty Garden in the City.
The herb spiral should also be weeded and planted. Have fun and be sure to harvest anything and everything that is ripe. Coming soon – a complete map of the garden. Thanks for making our garden such a success! Enjoy!
