From £120 ex. VAT

A shocking number of children don’t know where different fruits and vegetables come from, let alone what is native to Britain and what is imported.  Gardening helps children connect to and understand their natural environment.

Gardening is a great way to stimulate children’s senses and our playground planters allow schools to introduce the idea of gardening to children in a way that’s not overwhelming or insurmountable but fun and interesting.

Great fun and long lasting life lessons go hand in hand when children get outdoors and start to observe and question their environment; what happens to the plants in their planters if it doesn’t rain or if it rains too much.  Why do different plants thrive better in the shade than the hot sun; a playground planter can help answer these questions and really make the curriculum come alive.

Children can be involved in every aspect of “planter projects” from choosing what to grow to sampling the end results and there are plenty of great online resources that offer great advice for young horticulturalists through-out the year.
