How to garden with children

To children a garden shouldn’t be just a garden. It should be a playground, a den, an escape, the great outdoors and a wildlife reserve. Any garden can provide hours of fun for inquisitive young minds, but with a bit of imagination you can make it even better, creating something that might just have a greater draw on children’s attention than the latest DVD or computer game!
