HOW TO GET THE KIDS
INTO GARDENING

Want your kids to have fun in the fresh air this Easter? They'll soon be green-fingered with our planting playset

Gardening is one of the best child-friendly activities. Kids love the fact they can get as mucky as anything and that it’s actually allowed. They’re generally obsessed with bugs and have great fun hunting them out. They find growing stuff fascinating (quick-growing seeds like sunflowers are great for impatient gardeners) and, most of all, they love helping you. Which is why this gardening playset, complete with watering can, spray, plant pots and tools, is brilliant. Give them ownership of a little patch (or a few pots) and let them decorate, dig, plant and water to their heart’s content.
