As soon as our youngsters are old enough to help out in the garden they, invariably, want to. I know I did and all of my children did; then there comes a time when that wears off, so I'd make the most of it while you can!
I remember being given a little square of ground in our garden, when I was little, and being SO chuffed when my first marigolds flowered and my first radishes sprouted - it was just awesome.
If you have a little one with itchy green fingers then you might want to take a look at this In the Night Garden gardening set, it's rather cute and perfectly sized for allowing little ones to get their hands dirty.
It comes with a trowel, rake, gloves, seeds, planters, apron, spinner game and a gardening bag; everything is brightly coloured and features everyone's favourite In the Night Garden characters too.
