Fun for all the family

Children will love our play area - equipped with everything they need to have a great day out. There’s plenty to keep them entertained turning a shopping trip into an adventure. They get to play and you get valuable extra time to make those all important decisions that will make your garden bloom.  

We have climbing frames suitable for all sizes and ages and slides to fly down from the top. Of course there’s a soft play surface to protect against any slips and trips. Our huge sand pit is a firm favourite and occupies a large space at the far end of the play area. On sunny days it’s perfect for building sandcastles and beats driving all the way to the coast. It hosts a mechanical excavator that kids can sit on and practice becoming landscapers and is not to be missed. 

It’s a wonderful space and if they haven’t already seen how much fun gardening can be, they soon will.  

This isn’t all we have for children though, throughout the year we’ll be holding workshops, educational classes and activities where they can get to know the world of horticulture inside out. We believe children can really benefit from learning about the natural world first-hand.
