RHS Garden Rosemoor is inviting families to discover the joys of planting and harvesting vegetables, this May half term, with a week of fun family events.

The half-term programme is jam-packed with activities that will enlighten visitors on the joys of grow-your-own. From seeds and soil, and field and vine, then onto our plates – learn where fruit and veg come from and grow your very own edible feast.

Discover the amazing powers of growing vegetables at home on a family trail, and find out the myriad ways they can be used besides eating. Grow your own pea in a paper pot or make some wildflower seeded paper to create your own sustainable greetings card!
