Burgon & Ball: Growing Gardeners

Sheffield-based Burgon & Ball has launched ‘RHS Growing Gardeners’, a new gardening tool range for children.

Burgon & Ball children's gardening tool range

The range of tools and accessories is backed by an online resource with family-friendly ideas, projects and inspiration from the RHS experts, developed to make gardening with children easy and fun. Created with two distinct users in mind: the adult, as well as the child, the colourful tools and accessories makes it easy for families to start enjoying gardening together. Designed for age range 5 – 12, the range has been developed to appeal to all families and homes.

The RHS Growing Gardeners range includes; trowel and hand fork, digging fork and spade, watering can, gloves, dibber and planting ruler set and paper pot maker. Also included, a Link-a-Pot – which is a set of three plant pots with clear bases to show when the plant needs watering, helping families keep their plants healthy for a positive growing experience. The pots can be linked together to form chains and shapes, and linked with additional sets. To transport and store the tools, a potting mat and tool bag is also available, along with sets of colourful garden stakes, in a choice of designs, to mark out the young gardener’s special patch in the garden.

The range has been created with sustainability front of mind. There are recycled and recyclable materials; sustainable materials like bamboo; and recyclable card packaging. The durability of the tools and accessories lifts them out of the throwaway ‘sandpit tools’ category, instead offering a ‘buy once, buy right’ investment in quality.
