Kings Worthy Primary School

Roman Garden

The addition of double access gates in 2012 was key in enabling us to transport materials and maintain the area and the construction of our Roman Garden began around an exisiting apple tree and a fig tree. Over the years, we've added olive trees, box, bay, herbs, vines and strawberries.   The Roman Garden leads on to our orchard with apple, pear, apricot, plum and cherry trees.
