The RHS are crowdfunding for a children’s garden that will showcase gardening in inner city schools. Everyone can join in with gardening and reap the benefits, whilst hopefully creating the gardeners of tomorrow.

This week work begun on our school mini-meadow. Grown-ups prepared the ground, children will sow, insects and birds will get busy! When I explained it could take two years to establish wildflowers – gasps from everyone. Important to appreciate that nature needs to take its time and does not happen in a click.
