The accompanying craft model pictures show just one way of getting kids motivated about bulb planting and the rudiments of border planning, succession, colour balance etc. Having decided (democratically) where [?front, back, middle of border] and how deeply, densely the various bulbs were to be planted, we finished the job indoors with all the illustrative packet cards turning into a simple 'floral ball' - it doubles as a playroom seasonal bauble but also gives a direct link to the pleasures yet to come as Spring progresses.

Nadolig Llawen!! Best wishes to all "Forkers" for the Festive Season and New Gardening Year 2014!!
