With everything now in full leaf, the sun finally shining AND a bank holiday, it’s the perfect time to get out in the garden
And as it’s National Children’s Gardening Week this week why not encourage little ones to join in too? This annual event celebrates the fun that gardens hold for children. Take a look at their website for all sorts of simple garden projects.
Seeing something they have planted flourish gives children a sense of wonder and accomplishment.
You could plant fruit, herbs or veg (now’s a perfect time for tomatoes, courgettes and peppers), or maybe a simple planter. There’s an abundance of bedding plants available at the moment and you could encourage them to choose your own. Or look for specific varieties.
These work really well together in a pot, should be simple to maintain (regular watering and a weekly feed) and give colour for months to come: Petunias, Lobelia and Salvia. Use a pot, planter, or even an old bowl or sink.
The more creative the better!
I post a blog every week featuring food, family and fun. There are lots of useful household tips, crafty ideas, giveaways and delicious recipes that I think you will find irresistible.
