Welcome back to our FREE Little Seedlings Workshops!

We are delighted to bring back our in-store Little Seedlings Workshops.

This month’s Little Seedlings Workshop is all about recycling, specifically how you can introduce it into your garden. This coincides with Recycling Week (21-26th September). 

From creating pots using all sorts of household waste to turning food scraps into amazing fertiliser, we’re going to explore lots of ways to look after the environment and have fun in the garden at the same time.

The workshop will cover:

  • The importance of recycling
  • How to start recycling in your garden
  • Making recycled seedling starter pots
  • Easy composting

There will be two sessions available to book based on your child’s age (see times for your store below):

  • Session 1: aimed at ages 4-7
  • Session 2: aimed at ages 8-10

Any families wishing their children to be in the same session, even though they might not both fit the same age category, will still be welcome to do so.

Please note:

  • Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Parents or guardians wishing to order hot drinks for the session in advance can do so during the booking process.
  • Dates and times for our Little Seedlings Clubs vary by store and not all stores are able to participate. 
  • Advance booking is required with spaces booked quickly – please book early to avoid disappointment.
  • Where a session is shown as 'Sold Out' – we're sorry, there are no more tickets available for that time.
