It is National Garden Week so lots of garden loving bloggers have teamed up to share great ideas for things to do in the garden.
15 Things to do in the Garden
Stone paths, stick wig wams, washing lines with string and fabric cut outs, shell bird baths, lollipop stick fences or sheds, small containers made into ponds, little veg patches, alpine plants, miniature gardens can be as complicated or as simple as you like.
Once you start it is hard to stop and children don’t need many bits and pieces before they are flying with their own ideas and themes. Favourite little toys can be a great starting point. Trays, flower pots make great places for them, and they can really brighten up a disused pot.
Scarecrows are great fun to make and there are so many ways to theme your scarecrow too! The full insructions can be found here.
Plant Wild Flowers
So easy to grow and a quick blast of colour and coverage for untidy corners of the garden. One year we filled an untidy and unloved bed at the end of the garden. This year we want to grow them all the way round the sunken trampoline. I have lots more ideas for lazy or time poor gardeners here.
