Edible Garden

Most children like to have a productive garden but it is essential that the fruits and vegetables they grow are varieties they are likely to eat. For example, radishes give satisfyingly fast results, but very few children enjoy eating them.

Chasing the Rainbow this Autumn

Our gardens provide us with a kaleidoscope of colours, particularly when deciduous trees put on their spectacular show of autumn foliage.

Get the kids out of the house during April and go on a leaf hunting expedition. How many different colours and shapes of leaves can you collect? Display the leaves by sticking them onto some paper in a rainbow shaped arch or colour wheel.
