There is nothing quite like the magical wonderland of a garden when you’re a child. Discovering new creatures hiding between the leaves, tasting the delicious things you can grow, and watching plants change throughout the year are all marvellous experiences for an inquisitive young mind.


That’s why Capital Gardens, London’s largest group of independent garden centres, is excited to announce brand new gardening classes as part of its Kids Gardening Club. The club aims to inspire children to retain a fascination with plants and gardens, and learn skills they can use for the rest of their lives.


This summer’s activities will kick off this June with Edible Gardening classes, promoting healthy eating. Children will learn what can be grown and how they can grow produce, with a look at the different edibles, vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers. Kids will also be able to plant seeds, fruit and vegetables to take home!


Edible Gardening classes will be taking place Saturday 23rdJune 10-12pm and 2-4pm and Saturday 30thJune 10-12pm and 2-4pm at the following Capital Gardens centres:


  • Alexandra Palace Garden Centre: Alexandra Palace Way, London, N22 7BB
  • Neals Nurseries Garden Centre: Heathfield Road, Wandsworth, London, SW18 3HR
  • Woods of Berkhamsted Garden Centre:High Street, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, HP4 1BJ


Priced at £6 per session or £10 for two children. Suitable for children aged between 5 and 10.
