Some easy to grow to flowers and vegetables include:
- Sweet Peas

Learning through play is integral to a child’s development and spending time outdoors, close to nature is invaluable! Learning the names of birds, butterflies and bugs, being able to see the lifecycle of plants are all great fun for young minds! We also can’t forget the benefits of good old fashioned fresh air! Let your little ones brighten up your outside space with cute ladybird bunting, perfect for a garden picnic.
