The Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Centre and top gardening writer Martyn Cox are hosting a special free kids bulb planting master class on Wednesday 30th September from 4 – 6pm at the Garden Museum in London.

Martyn Cox writes a weekly gardening column in The Mail on Sunday and is the author of Gardening with Kids and 101 Plants for Problem Places.

The master class aims to show children and their parents that gardening is a fun and easy activity.  The two hour interactive workshop will include the following:

  • Children will be invited to decorate pots (with paint, feathers, sequins etc) and then plant narcissus bulbs ready for blooming in spring.  The children will be able to take their planted pots home.
  • Children and their helpers will be shown how to plant bulbs (narcissus and crocus) in a pattern, or in their initials in the garden outside.
  • The children will then have a go at planting too.

Please contact The Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Centre on 020 7915 4776 to reserve a place at this fun and educational master class. Registration must be done in advance.
