In Bellevue, we think gardens are magical places - not just for grown-ups, but for children, too! Flower Belleâ€™s favourite kind of garden doesnâ€™t just have beautiful flowers that look and smell nice, it has plants for all five senses…
- Plants that rustle in the breeze and sound good!
- Herbs that taste yummy to eat!
- Leaves that feel furry or waxy or even spiny to touch!
This kind of garden is called a ‘sensory gardenâ€™, and you can get some ideas for planting your own here!
One of Flower Belleâ€™s favourite gardens for kids was designed for the childrenâ€™s charity, Kidâ€™s Company. The idea for it came from the end of a funny poem called Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. Itâ€™s so fab, the garden even won a special medal!
What would you put in your own magical, sensory garden? Do you think it would win a medal? Flower Belle would definitely love it!
