We’re jumping for joy that spring has finally sprung! Hooray for lighter mornings, longer evenings, leaping lambs and signs of spring popping up everywhere!
Wriggle those green fingers and toes!
It’s time to get out in the garden and get planting those seeds. It doesn’t matter if your fingers aren’t of the green variety, choosing easy to grow plants like sunflowers is a fab activity to enjoy with little ones. Sunflower seeds grow quickly, are easy to care for and can grow taller than your child! Get everyone involved and see which family member can grow the tallest sunflower! You can measure your plant’s progress day by day to see how much it has grown.
Or why not try a little veg patch? Courgettes, tomatoes and chilli plants are all super easy to grow and taste delicious!

Bee Happy and help our bees!
Did you know that there are over 270 different species of bee in the UK?
Our wild bumblebees and solitary bees are struggling due to loss of flower-rich habitats. For example, 97% of the wildflower meadows have been lost in the last century. Other factors like climate change, pesticide use and diseases also play a role.*
By planting Bee friendly flowers in your garden, window box or tubs, you can help to attract more of our fuzzy friends!
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust have lots of information about protecting bees, identifying species and which bee friendly plants are best for your garden! They even have a fun 'learning zone' with activities. crafts and games for kids aged 4- 11
