Back to the Garden with Sudocrem

Collaborative Post¦ I’m delighted to be working with Sudocrem again this spring, this time on their new Back to the Garden campaign! I love spending time in the garden with Autumn (aged 3) – more so than ever during the UK lockdown! However, you don’t have to have an outdoor space to enjoy some gardening with children. Let’s take a look about what Back to the Garden is all about. (Psst, there’s also a giveaway!)

Entertaining kids

Due to lockdown, schools are closed while as many of us self-isolate/quarantine as possible. As such, us parents are constantly looking for things to do to keep the kids entertained. Whether homeschooling is your style or not, gardening is a fun activity that will keep them away from screens for a bit. You don’t even need to have a garden. Creating a herb garden on a windowsill is just as fulfilling as planting things outside. It may seem as though everything is on hold, but spring isn’t – and now is the perfect time to plant.

Wellbeing

If the demand I’ve seen for deliveries for my local garden centre is anything to go by, many people are enjoying gardening right now. I know I certainly have, taking advantage of the sunny weather we’ve had! Michael Holland, ecologist, author and nature editor says “It’s been good to see a return to activities like gardening during this unusual period. We often forget how good for our wellbeing gardening can be: it’s relaxing, it’s soothing and the garden is a fantastic place for families to enjoy together – it makes us feel good to nurture seedlings as they grow to become vegetables or flowers.” With this unprecedented time being challenging for mental health, gardening is a great escape. It’s an activity that allows control, is relaxing and gives you a sense of fulfilment.

Back to the Garden

So, this campaign from Sudocrem is encouraging us parents to begin gardening projects with our children. They’ll be guiding us with tips and advice on potting plants, spotting weeds and keeping plants healthy. They will also be donating 100 growing kits to families across the UK to get them kickstarted – 3 of which you can get your hands on here!

Both indoor kits and outdoor kits are available.

  • A Back to the Garden drawstring bag
  • A Back to the Garden t-shirt
  • A packet of herb seeds
  • A packet of flower seeds
  • A pair of children’s gardening gloves

  1. My favourite herb is thymus. There are many many varieties but they smell amazing, can be eaten but they also look really good too. One of mine has yellow flowers whilst another has purple.
    My children would say their favourite is lavender. They certainly enjoy gardening.

  4. Mint is my favourite herb. Its relatively easy to grow once the plants are well established. There’s nothing better than a homemade mint sauce.
