Children’s Veg Patch
Out of stock
One for the little gardeners but can be enjoyed just as much by their grown up gardening helpers!
We passionately believe that it is important to get the whole family growing as early as possible. With this clever garden, getting little ones involved is child’s play! They will love planting this lovely selection of baby plants into the ground, watching them grow away and then harvesting their very own treasures. And then comes the best bit – eating the fruits of their labour with the rest of the family.
This garden was carefully created to include a wide variety of tastes, colours and textures to ensure it includes everything needed to get children excited about healthy food.
Space required: 8m2

Get your garden ready to plant...
When your garden arrives, your plants will need to be unpacked and watered before they are ready to plant. Follow our three step guide below:
1. Unpack your plants
As soon as possible after your plants arrive, carefully unpack them all. They may look a little tired after their journey but this is nothing to worry about.
2. Identify each plant
Each type of plant (but not each individual plant) will be clearly labelled. Lay them out into their respective plant types (e.g. wild rocket, cauliflower, peas).
3. Give them a drink
The roots may be dry, so give them all a good drink of water by standing the plants upright and submerging the roots for a few minutes in a container of clean water.
3 steps to success...
When you’re ready to plant your Rocket Garden there’s a very simple 3 step process to planting them; whether you’re planting in pots, containers, grow bags, raised beds or straight into the ground.
1. Dig a hole
Using a trowel or a dibber (basically a pointed stick) make a hole big enough in the soil to fit the roots of your baby plant and ideally sprinkle in a handful of wormcast fertiliser. This will give your plants a great start in their new home and help to feed them throughout the growing season.
2. Pop the plant in
Carefully place the plant into the hole, making sure it is standing upright.
3. Fill the hole with soil
Cover up the roots of the plant using some of the soil you took out to make the hole, allowing the leaves or green shoots of the plant to remain out in the open. Then firm the soil around the base of the plant with your hands.
When we deliver
We deliver these gardens from late May until July, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as we do not use any artificial heat to raise our plants, so we are a little dependant on the weather.
You can order from…
These gardens are available to be ordered and dispatched right up until late July, as the plants arrive as healthy young plants and will have already been growing for at least 2-3 months before you receive them, giving you a great head start on your vegetable growing!
Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.
We will keep you posted
You will receive an email approximately a week before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
