I think if you leave your garden unattended  it will find you those wild flowers that will grow in your garden commonly known as weeds. To grow wild flowers successfully is hard if you have not got the land as it will look a mess otherwise .

No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?

Why not ask your local gardeners or allotment owners or if each child choose a plant and bought from their local garden centre (grandparents could donate cause) the fun in choosing and dads and granpa s could try out their carpenter skills.
