About Gardening For Kids

the gardening for kids family

We are a family team; Sarah, her parents Louise and Mark, and her sister Alice.

  • Sarah is the entrepreneur; she is the inspiration behind the site.
  • Louise is the gardener; she tends our own garden and has had several allotments in the past.
  • Mark is the computer-wrangler; a software engineer who has run several small businesses over the years.
  • Alice is the wordsmith; she is a professional writer and looks after all the wordy stuff.

We live in a small farming village in North Essex. Many of our pictures have been taken in our own gardens.


We hope to inspire the next generation of gardeners! Children are instinctively curious and love to join in with the adults around them, and having their own kids' gardening gloves, tools and accessories makes them feel special. Why not give them their own seeds to grow in brightly-coloured plant pots? Looking after growing plants teaches children responsibility, and a gives them a huge sense of achievement when the plants flower.

This is our first foray into the world of online business; we hope you like what we have on offer. Everything we do aims to inspire children about the wonderful world of gardening, and encourage them to care for the world they live in. On our site, you will find educational, unusual and fun children's gardening products, and a wealth of information.


If you have any ideas or suggestions we would love to hear them. Find us on Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Send us your pictures and tell us how you are getting on in your garden!


Enjoy browsing, and happy gardening!
