Grow your own greens at Squire's in Washington

Put the fun back into eating your greens, and keep your children entertained, by bringing them to Squire’s Garden Centre in Washington during May half term where they can plant a tasty and nutritious fruit & veg box to take home.

This is a great way to get children outdoors and into gardening. For just £5.50 children can plant up a box with three plants – choose from pepper, lettuce, tomato or strawberry plants – then take the box home to care for the plants and watch them grow. Children will no doubt see the fun in eating their own home-grown greens!

Squire’s will also be running other free activities during half term. Get creative and enter the colouring competition to colour in Hazel the squirrel in her vegetable garden, the best entries will win a prize. Or be a detective and take part in their Veggie Hunt – follow a trail of questions around the garden centre and collect a sticker at the end.

Squire’s’ ‘Create & Grow’ activities for children take place every day from Monday May 30 to Friday June 3 from 10am-4pm. Plus there’s no need to book, simply turn up on the day. Each activity takes around 20 minutes. First come, first served. Product available while stocks last. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
