  1. Gardening with children

    Posted on

    Most children, when given half the chance, love gardening and being outdoors in the garden. What better way to get them to eat vegetables than to have them help grow them. Wether you are in the garden or down at the allotment there are plenty of tasks that children can help out with.

    Including but not limited to - Sowing, deadheading, sweeping, harvesting, watering.

    If you are feeling adventurous maybe assign part of the garden as their very own patch to tend to and love and care for. What ideas have you come up with for your children in the garden? I'd love to hear about them !
