One of my favourite things to do with the kids is to give them an old wheelbarrow or large container and let them have free reign to design it however they please.
In our show, Grow Your Own at Home with Alan Titchmarsh, he set Frances, Katie, and I the challenge of planting up a trug, so I thought I’d get the kids involved.
To create the spectacular wonderland that got us the win, we used a variety of plants and materials to fill the trug with character.
We added logs, moss, and conifers to build up a structure and give some height to the container which we then filled with beautifully aromatic and attractive flowers and herbs.
Not only is our trug pretty but it’s practical too as it’s filled with plants that can be cut and harvested to be used in the kitchen.
