The 23rd-31st May 2015 sees the Britain’s first ever National Children’s Gardening Week.

Kicking off during Spring Bank Holiday, and taking place during half term, there’s no better time to get the children or grandchildren outside and involved in your garden projects.

Visit Dunston Hall Garden Centre this week and ask a member of staff what we can do to make your children’s time in the garden as fun as possible.


“Children love growing plants, love being the garden but are often impatient growers wanting instant results.
National Children’s Gardening Week is in the ‘warm’ half term at the end of May which means that pretty much throughout the UK they can plant all the popular children plants with less fear of weather damage nor the need for complicated protective growing.
So go to it during the first National Children’s Gardening Week – May 23rd to 31st.”
