I’ve seen a few seed and book packs but none so cool as the visually delightful treats from the Secret Seed Society. Tapping into the desire to educate your child about food through stories as well as through planting and watching things grow, their ethically produced kits turn create a fun experience for 3-7 year […]

Alfie loves being in the garden and helping out with our vegetable patch, so he is extremely enamoured of this watering can  – a gift from his Granny Boo last weekend. I love it too – the chunky metal is a refreshing change from the usual flimsy plastic cans and the zingy shade and cute […]

Little Baby Company is easily one of my favourite online shops. I might even be guilty of staking out their new products section more than is strictly healthy. My obsession is rewarded with a veritable smorgasbord of delicious new products. Their new outdoors fun section is jam packed with both kitsch and chic products for […]

I’m not big on cutesy stuff but the moment I laid eyes on these animal shaped watering cans, I decided that ‘we’ had to have one, especially as ‘the bambino’, Saria, has a thing about watering, or should I say drowning the plants.

    Summer is almost upon us (fingers crossed) and the boyf is making lots of noises about spending lots of time out there pottering about and planting things, which offers the perfect opportunity for the bambino to develop a love of gardening.

Natalie writes… Despite having no interest in gardening as an adult, when I was a child, I loved watching how things grow, so my interest was immediately peaked when I spotted this bargain buy over at Ethical Superstore. From planting the seed till they sprout, the Root Viewer by Toyday enables your bambino to get […]
