This time last year Wilf's granny bought these planters and helped him plant his first flowers. We dug them out again this weekend to do a little gardening. Donning our wellies and getting our hands a little mucky was a lot of fun. Wilf got a bit carried away with digging the holes and wanted to dig up the plants and start again once we were done. We settled on him digging some holes in the corner of the garden after we had finished, in an attempt to protect the flowers we had just planted!
We were asked to take part in the Easy Grow project in association with B&Q. I initially thought this was to remind parents how fun it is to garden with your children (it is!) but after reading a little more I was really interested in the initiative behind it.

You can also watch this video with the lovely Emilia Fox if you fancy it :)
I must admit I have never really thought of the waste involved when buying bedding plants so it's fantastic news to hear about this initiative. It's also reminded me how lovely it is to do simple outdoor activities with my kiddo, I'm so excited that Wilf is of an age to be interested in gardening. We even found a wriggly worm which was very exciting!
