First published in News

CHILDREN from Ambleside Primary School enjoyed a day of story-telling, planting and gnome–hunting on a visit to Hayes Garden World.

The visit marked the launch of ‘Gary the Gardener and the Lonely Little Flowerpot’, a children’s sticker-and-story book commissioned by the centre.

It tells a story featuring litter-gathering gnomes, robins, dolphins and a flying ca.. with each page including a fun activity, such as a puzzle to solve.

The book is the latest in a series of Budding Young Gardeners materials which the garden centre has invested in to encourage children to develop a love of gardening.

Membership of the Budding Young Gardeners Club is free and there are already more than 1,500 children signed up – to find out more about the club, visit
