Children Get in Free at Flower Show

I like the idea which is new this year of allowing children in free to this year's Hampton Court Flower Show.

The idea is to get children more interested in gardening, particularly planting. This ties in nicely with the `Let Children Grow` gardening campaign.

The numbers of children attending the show are expected to be well up this year on last year`s 5,000 child visitors. Events such as making musical instruments out of vegetables to a competition to build a Tudor scarecrow are being held.

A knock on hoped for effect of involving children in gardening is to encourage more to be aware of cooking and eating healthy food, rather than junk food.
