Gardening at home with the children

Have you taken time to notice that spring is arriving?

Why not make the most of this time that we have at home to get out into the garden with our children. If your garden is anything like mine, it will need some tidying up. This is a perfect opportunity to mow the grass, prunce back bushes and plants, get rid of weeds, and plants some bulbs.

Here are ten ideas that you could try with your children in the garden, from Gardens World.
