Get in your Garden! Guest Post Series

Get In Your Garden

With spring nearly upon us, I am starting a weekly guest post series called Get in Your Garden!. The aim is to encourage individuals, children and families to get outside and enjoy their garden, however large or small.  Posts will range from how to tutorials, hints and tips, garden inspiration and family fun activities.

Get in Your Garden!

We love being in the garden. I love growing my own fruit and veg, the kids love playing outside making mud pies and the such like, and as a family we spend a lot of time in the garden in the spring and summer.

I am looking for bloggers who are interested in contributing to this weekly guest post series which will start on Monday 20th March, to coincide with the official first day of Spring. Posts can be anything that encourage people to get into their garden. Whether it be how to grow tutorials, messy play activities for the kids, garden design ideas, building bug hotels, the list is endless!

If you do not want to participate, but are looking for inspiration to spend more time in your garden this year, then look no further! Make sure you subscribe to the page so you don’t miss a post!

For those of you who are considering contributing, I have come up with a list of suggested themes. By no means are you confined to one of these ideas, it is merely meant to be a source of inspiration for you, and to give you a rough idea of the sort of posts I am looking for.

• How to grow/plant flowers/fruit/veg
• Allotment/Shed/garden makeovers
• Garden design
• Garden crafts
• Family games/activities
• BBQ ideas
• Messy play ideas
• Make your own bird house/bug house
• How to build a pond
• Ideas for smaller gardens

Posts can be old or new, as long as they are still relevant today. If you are interested in taking part, please let me know by filling out your details below, and just give me a rough indication of what type of post you would like to submit. Any questions, just ask!

    I have so many lovely activities planned for out in the garden this spring & summer! Our garden is really small and we don’t have any grass which is very frustrating with two young children that just want to be out and play!
    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

      There is still lots you can do without grass though! Messy play, chalk painting, potion making, planting tubs, all sorts. x

    Unfortunately we live in a flat so we don’t have a garden. I cannot wait to move later this year so we will finally have one.

      What about growing herb pots on your kitchen windowsill? or Egg cressheads? They are lots of fun for the kids. I’ll be posting about it soon so keep your eyes out!

    We love gardening!!! What a fabulous idea. Where I live, on an island in Canada, we only have enough food on the island for 3 days if anything bad were to happen and its due to lack of farming and gardening by our generation! I love seeing others getting back to basics and teaching their kiddos too! Good on ya! Thanks for sharing #KCACOLS

      I love gardening, and I think it’s so important to teach our kids where our food comes from too. I really want to encourage people to get outside and make the most of the outside space they have, however large or small. At the end of the day you can still grow herbs in pots on a windowsill, or cherry tomatoes from a hanging basket. Thanks for your comment Nadine.

    What a great idea! We spend so much time outside in summer, I’ll definitely try to take part. #kcacols

    Hello Kerry, Gardens are another face of nature. It gives us fresh fruits, pure air, shadow, peace and more things. It’s very beneficial for our health and also for environment. Thanks you so much for sharing this blog.
