The perfect gift

The gift was purchased for my 4 year old great nephew. He loves being outside and is fascinated by the wildlife that he sees in his garden and out and about. He was very excited about the Bug hotel and that he would be able to decorate it. The brush was perhaps a little too small for him, so he used one of his thicker brushes. The whole experience from buying the Bug Hotel to placing it in the garden has been excellent. Its heart warming to hear that he is so enthusiastic about his Big Hotel. Long may that continue.

Lovely gift

I have never used Gardening for Kids before, I was so surprised at the choices for children, not readily available elsewhere. I read the reviews all of which were very positive and I can now echo them. The bug hotel is excellent, good quality and looks amazing. Very good value. My granddaughter will be thrilled with it and the bonus is she cant paint it herself. It came very quickly and was very well wrapped. I will use this website again & recommend.

Great value Bug Hotel

Really well made Bug Hotel (I also bought the Paint Your Own Bird Hotel!) Was struggling to find any that weren’t flimsy or too small but these are just brilliant - really well made and sturdy. You get the paints with it so kids good to go straight away! Always pleasant and easy purchases with Gardening for Kids. Thank you

Standard delivery charges are:

£3.20 for all orders under £39.99
Free for orders over £40
Express postage £12.00. Please read T&Cs.
Bulk orders over £100 are £10

Some products (thin books, seeds, Seedcells etc) can be sent as a large letter, which costs less. If it's possible to be sent as a large letter, then this will be calculated at checkout and cost £1.10. If we can send it for less than you paid, we will refund you.

Express postage
Express orders placed after 12 noon will be dispatched the next working day. Depending on your order size and weight, we will send Royal Mail Tracked 24 or UPS Express. Please be aware that this is not a guaranteed Next Day service: for example, an order placed on Thursday at 3pm, will not be dispatched until Friday and may not arrive until Monday. Please also bear in mind that we cannot influence these carriers, so we cannot refund orders that do not arrive in time unless in exceptional circumstances.

Delivery times
For most products we use Royal Mail, but occasionally we may use UPS or another carrier. We aim to dispatch all orders within 24 hours of the order being placed, Monday to Friday.  Delivery with standard Royal Mail is usually 3-5 working days.

Remote areas
Delivery to remote UK areas including the Isle of Man and the Isles of Scilly may cost more, depending on the weight of the parcel. Delivery to these areas may also take longer than usual. Please get in touch before ordering.

Northern Ireland
Due to Brexit, Royal Mail are the only carrier to deliver our items to Northern Ireland. However, they have restrictions on box weight and size, meaning we cannot send some heavy/large products to Northern Ireland (such as Long Tools or wheelbarrows). Please get in touch if you are unsure.

We strongly believe that it is our duty to reduce our environmental impact wherever we can. Therefore, we re-use delivery boxes when appropriate. Don't be alarmed if the box has branding from other companies on it: it will have been carefully packed and have our 'Gardening for Kids' sticker on it.


If you change your mind or are unhappy with an item you have bought, then you may return it for a full refund of the purchase price within 14 days of delivery. To be eligible for a refund the item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it and in the original packaging. This will be extended after Christmas until 14th January.

Email us at info@gardeningforkids.co.uk or call on 01440 782071 and we'll get back to you with the details. We ask that you cover the return postage and let us know why the item is being returned. This may help us better understand your needs in future. If the item is faulty then let us know. We will cover return postage in this case.

Perishable goods cannot be returned, nor items that have signs of wear or damage. We do not accept responsibility for any seeds or seed kits purchased from us that do not germinate, and we cannot offer refunds based on this. However, please let us know if you are unhappy and we'll see what we can do!

Once your return is received we notify you by email. If all is OK, your refund will be processed, and a credit will be applied to your original method of payment.
