Wednesday Tips #5


Even when the weather is cold there is always something to look at in a garden. There may be fairy toadstools to see (but not touch!), pansies cheering up gloomy weather with their happy faces, fallen  camellia blooms to gather and float in a shallow bowl of water or birds busy gathering nectar from Winter flowering native shrubs. Whilst doing these things with your grandchild there will be many opportunities to talk and wonder together thus helping with the development of language and an appreciation of our natural world.

If you and your grandchild planted daffodil bulbs during Autumn, now is the time to start looking for  strong green shoots pushing up through the soil.
