Along with several other activities, gardening is the perfect pastime for your kids to enjoy this summer. Not only can getting out into the garden to explore help children learn more about nature’s cycles but it can also increase their environmental awareness while providing them with the opportunity to nurture new life.

With Brexit now a reality, we are starting to experience some issues with deliveries to European countries, especially Ireland. A number of packages, sent via our courier DPD, have been returned by customs with no comments or instructions to enable us to correct paperwork and enable the delivery to proceed. We are doing our best to rectify this.
