Activities for children

A great day out for all the family

A great day out for all the family

BBC Gardeners' World Live is perfect for the whole family - a great opportunity to educate children about gardening, food and wildlife.

More details will be published here as it becomes available.

Roots to Fruits 

Have a go at turning a garden problem spot into an opportunity in a brand new feature lead by the award winning, Midlands-based social enterprise Roots to Fruit.

Visitors will get hands-on to help create four parts of a garden, one section for each day of the show! The gardens will focus on four common problem areas, including a shady border and a space for families with constraints on their time. Visitors will be able to select, with expert advice, the best plants for the situation, lay turf and even get involved installing features. This fun and practical activity will offer up both practical and theoretical insights as well as useable skills for developing an area of garden. There’ll also be tips and pointers on solving some of the most common plant choice problems faced by gardeners.

roots to fruits

Make a beeline for the Roots to Fruit interactive garden at the weekend when the gardens being created will have a family focus.

Kids, parents and grandparents will be actively encouraged to get involved, and the children will relish the opportunity to get their hands dirty!

weaved fences

Watch as WonderWood weave fences

We are WonderWood – a family run business, and the makers of beautiful, bespoke and durable woven willow products.

We offer a wide range of handwoven willow products including continuous woven fencing, oak framed woven willow panels and gates, oil tank and wheelie bin screens, privacy extensions, oak framed and woven garden architecture, and woven and thatched tree houses.

We cut our own materials by hand, sourcing from local, sustainable woodlands and willow beds. Using traditional tools and techniques we produce beautiful, strong, and long-lasting structures that not only complement the landscape but provide a beautiful, organic and functional addition to your garden.

Come and visit us at Gardener’s World to watch and be inspired as we weave a fence, an arch, a fire pit area, and a woven willow children’s den. We will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have or to brainstorm ideas for your own garden.
