Many children are keen to try their hand at gardening or are just inquisitive “to see what comes up”. Others may want to grow something giant that reminds them of children’s stories. I was roped in to take out tomato side shoots and to debud Chrysanthemum flowers at the age of 4, and I really enjoyed it all, until our geese neatly cut off all my flowering Anemones! We have put together on this page some fun items to tempt any budding horticulturists. The picture above shows what fun can be had painting dried large Gourds!
