National Children’s Gardening Week was started here at Ferndale Garden Centre by Neil Grant even though in that first year it wasn’t really national. From small acorns larger Oaks grow.  

In that first year Neil’s contacts in the garden centre industry saw it’s potential and approximately 50 garden centres joined in. 

Today all sorts of businesses join in from city institutions, schools, nurseries, authors, & TV cooks have understand the impact that plants, growing & gardening have on children’s health & education.
