There’s nothing more delightful than seeing a child chase after a butterfly, but sadly butterfies are on the decline in the UK due to changing environments. So why not help them beat that downward trend and entice butterflies into your own garden by growing  fragrant flowers to attract beautiful butterflies with the Sow and Grow Butterfly Garden kit for kids?

  1. It’s a good activity for the children. They should learn to interact and value the nature. I am sure, kids would love to do it.

  2. I am trying to be a bit more green fingered, especially as we have a garden and I think the botanist garden would be perfect for my daughter and me too.

  3. A fab selection. We are having or garden redone next week and hubby is very keen to get the girls into gardening x

  4. My children and gardening don’t quite get along, but I would like to see them doing at least some garden work. I’ll try this out. Who knows, maybe they’ll end up loving the gardening. Thanks for the great post.
