Sudocrem are also involved as they have just launched a lovely new product called My Little Sudocrem which is perfect for those little green fingers.

It has been proven that a childhood spent outdoors helps children to grow up healthier and happier.  My Dad was a keen gardener and I used to spend hours with him helping him grow his vegetables and some of my own.  Which also passed down to my Daughter. As soon as she could walk she would always be found in the garden with Grandad helping him with his vegetables or with the fruit trees.

New research has shown

  • Whilst 87% of British households have a garden, it is something that families are not enjoying together.
  • Over half of British children aged between 4 and 8 are unable to name 5 vegetables or fruits grown in this country.
  • 95% are unable to name 3 herbs
  • Many of the children unable to identify a basic gardening tool. With 8% able to identify a trowel. 80% never having seen a rake before. 79% believing worms are bad for plants

Further research shows

  • 73% have never seen a sunflower
  • 8% have only picked an apple
  • Less than 10% had dug up a vegetable
  • 6% had ever eaten a fresh pea from the pod

 

How Sudocrem is involved

Many parents worry about their children getting the odd scratch.  Which is where My Little Sudocrem comes in.  It is a great multi-tasker for gardeners.

Should gardening be taught it schools?

Surprisingly children would love this.  Although under half of the children surveyed had access to a garden at school, over 90% of them said they would like one.

    I was a wartime baby in London so we couldn’t get out into the garden for fear of being shot at. I do remember seeing a German plane overhead which then went on to bomb the local school.

    I didn’t have a garden as a child, just a back yard. Now we have a garden we make sure the children are involved in planting and watering

    I used to love gardening with my nan – she was war era so used to grow her own fruit and veggies in the back garden and flowers in the front. I have many happy memories of helping her pick runner beans, watering the garden from the rain water collected in the water butt, digging up potatoes and hours weeding the flower patch

    My grandfather had a market garden where he grew gladioli and also had blackcurrant bushes and kept bees whose honey he sold locally. We knew it as The Ranch and had a caravan there where we spent many a happy summer
