There is nothing quite like the magical wonderland of a garden when you’re a child. Discovering new creatures hiding between the leaves, tasting the delicious things you can grow, and watching plants change throughout the year are all marvellous experiences for an inquisitive child.

Gardening is a fun activity that gives children an appreciation for nature and skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. That’s why Capital Gardens runs kid’s gardening days to inspire children to retain a fascination with plants and gardens.

Gardening gives children plenty of opportunities to play, learn and socialise. We aim to teach children about the responsibility of caring for plants, nature and the earth. Activities based around plants and garden wildlife give the children a chance to learn about nature and see how fun the outdoors can be in a safe space. They are also encouraged to learn about the life cycle of plants, where food comes from, and the environment.

£6 per session or £10 for two children. Suitable for children aged between 5 and 10
