The RHS has collaborated with HRH The Duchess of Cambridge to create a set of five activity cards designed to inspire children to engage with gardens and nature. These step-by-step guides take inspiration from elements of the Duchess’ RHS Back to Nature Garden which has been designed for this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
If you can’t get to Chelsea this year, you can download the activities below and have a go at them with your children or group.
Have a go at making a fun miniature garden using natural materials or found objects. You could create a magical fairy hideaway or Jurassic jungle!

Painted pebbles are fun to make and can brighten up your garden terrace or pots. Use them as plant labels for your crops, use for a treasure hunt or even practice your counting.
