Back To The Garden With Sudocrem

With the nation still in lockdown, and children still at home instead of returning to school after the Easter break.  It is nice to give them something more to get excited over.  Which is why I have tem up with Sudocrem and their latest Back To The Garden campaign.

About Back To The Garden

Whether you have a garden, balcony, allotment or windowsill, gardening is something that everyone can enjoy.  Children especially love planting seeds and watching them grow.  As it is spring time this is the perfect time for planting seeds.

With schools being closed fo an indefinite period, this does not mean an end to education. As millions of parents all over the UK look for new ways to keep children busy, British skincare brand, Sudocrem, launches their new Back to the Garden campaign. An initiative to get families back into planting and growing, wherever they are.

Encouraging our children

Encouraging your children to plant seeds and take an interest in growing can give them a longterm project to focus on, away from the computer. And the good news is, you don’t need a garden to get involved: creating a window box full of edible herbs can be just as inspiring as digging a vegetable patch.

“It’s been good to see a return to activities like gardening during this unusual period,” says ecologist, author and nature educator, Michael Holland. “We often forget how good for our wellbeing gardening can be: it’s relaxing, it’s soothing and the garden is a fantastic place for families to enjoy together – it makes us feel good to nurture seedlings as they grow to become vegetables or flowers.”

A Helping Hand

Teaming up with gardeners and garden centres all over the nation. Sudocrem’s Back to the Garden campaign will encourage children and their parents to begin their own gardening projects at home or in the garden. The initiative will include tips and advice on potting plants. Plus spotting a weed and keeping your plants healthy from gardeners all over the UK. Sudocrem will also be donating one hundred growing kits to families all over the UK to kick-start their growing projects.

Right now, there arearound 5 million children under the age of 10who need activities to get them through the next few months,” says Alice Bamford, Sudocrem brand manager. “At Sudocrem, we want to give families a hand as best we can.”

Soothing Those Hands

Gardening can be harsh on delicate skin, as every gardener knows. From contact with cold water when watering the plants, digging in the mud for weeds. Planting new seeds and planters, using tools – it’s a hands-on activity. Even standing outside in the sun can cause damage and dryness to the face and neck. Then there’s getting pricked by rose thorns, stung by nettles and insects, scraped knees….

Gardener’s new best friend comes in the pocket-sized form of My Little Sudocrem, the Swiss army-knife of soothing skincare products. Loved by everyone from babies to teenagers, runners to cyclists, mountaineers to gardeners and anyone in between.
