    I would love foxgloves hollie but as they're poisonous I thought best not, a lot of younger siblings play after school in the grounds so I think better safe than sorry ( I grow foxgloves in hard to reach areas but constantly am on guard to ensure my children know they could be harmful)

    Perhaps you could teach the children that some plants are toxic. An important lesson.

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    lovely ladybird we could do those in sunny sites, i've just been looing at wildfloers for the more wodey areas ( not deep) thinking self heal,red campion and lesser spearwort, as they're all ok to sow now

    I hope you post some pictures (of the plants, not the children of course) of the results in the garden. image
