Getting back to nature is great for the kids and I have Eliza as a keen flower researcher and Sebastian a bug hunter.
East Dorset’s Knoll Gardens has just released its 2020 event programme. The full programme features over 70 garden-based activities ranging from willow weaving to photography, and horticultural masterclasses to wildlife walks.
