Ullapool Primary School

This Pocket Garden was built by pupils at Ullapool Primary School. Aptly named "Living with the Sea", Ullapool is a fishing village on the west coast, It features landmarks and objects associated with the sea around them, a fishing boat growing spinach and beans, a lighthouse growing strawberries and chives.

The garden features decorative lobster pot planters growing nasturtium and stones found on their local beach that have been painted with words associated with the sea in english and gaelic.

The garden also features driftwood found by one of the children, this has been planted with heather found on Ullapool hill.
