Whilst you are here, take time to spot the signs of spring in the garden. Flowers are blooming and the bees and insects have woken up from winter. 

If you're planning on visiting with children over the holidays, you can also print off a 'Kid's Nature Conservationist' worksheet at home to bring along with you. This worksheet helps children understand the importance of staying on the pathways to help protect bulbs and advises on the best spots in the garden to sit and watch nature. Nature Conservationist (PDF / 0.6MB) download
