From toddlers to teens there is a gardening activity to suit your child. Gardening is something fun you can do together, and over the weeks you can watch the progress of the plants you grow. Quick, fun things like sunflowers, radishes and strawberries are perfect starter crops. There are fun, local garden clubs for kids too, run by trained professionals.
There has been recent upsurge in interest in Britain’s edible wild plants, berries and nuts.
