Get your kids growing1 We have found some great sites that will help with tips
and ideas to inspire and educate your little ones.
Stumble Upon is a great new website that gives you the option to explore websites you never knew existed. You select your interests and it suggests pages you might find interesting. Believe me, this site contains hours of surfing. We browsed the gardening pages and found some great sites.
At See It Gro we support the ‘don’t dig peat’ campaign. By using See It Gro grow bags you are helping to save the fragile wetlands that are home to many animals and birds.
According to www.idontdigpeat.org.uk, more than 24 million wheelbarrows of peat are used every year by amateur gardeners in the UK. Did you know that over the last century in the UK alone 75% of blanket bogs and 94% of raised bogs have been destroyed!
The One Pot Pledge is an exciting new grow your own campaign from the leading gardening charity Garden Organic. Their aim is to get 30,000 people who have never grown anything before to give it a go! Such a great idea!!
