Gardening should be for the young.

This week the FT has done feature article on Botanicum by Kathy Willis. 

It is a book for children.

We should try to introduce them to plants.

Plant science will come later.

Also, the RHS is running a scheme for adults and teachers to help bring gardening into schools.

We have amazing institutions ,such as the RHS and KEW.

An all round approach is needed if we are to ensure that horticulture stays in the limelight.

Gardening provides a great outdoor activity.

Children are never too young to start!
