Teaching Children Gardening Art

Garden design is a fine art, it creates wonderful displays that the whole family can enjoy. That’s why we believe that everyone, including young people, should be encouraged do join in with gardening.

So we’ve got some lovely pages and videos for you to digest, and get digging!

Let’s be honest, it can be daunting to know where to start, so we advise you start in the beginners section to thoroughly get to know the basics before you move onto advanced potting and border design.

Don’t forget garden structures, as these can often create a framework for the plants around them.
