I’m posting this blog as I arrive in London for one of my gardening highlights of the year, RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Chilling at Chelsea
Tomorrow (Monday 22nd May) I might be recording a live podcast, I might be filming a clip for TV, I’m definitely eating a posh lunch and I’m definitely going to get lots of inspiration from some wonderful gardens and take them back to Manchester and say to my Dad……. “Dad, I’ve got this great idea for our garden” !
Last weekend I went back to the Blue Peter Garden to start some spring planting with one of the presenters, The Legend, Barney Harwood.
Lindsey and I had put the Blue Peter Garden ‘to bed’ back in December and the Manchester weather was at its worst, but on this filming session the sun was beaming down on Media City!

I’ve had a really busy week, sowing loads of seeds for my garden
and helping other kids to plant seeds at a stall I ran at a local park event.
Last week I posted my ‘Wonderful Wild Wales – by the sea’ blog and I’ve had lots of really great comments; like me, loads of people love the sea, love Wales and love wildlife!!!
So, this week’s blog is the ‘land version’ of my ‘wild week of Welsh Wildlife’
I spent Easter having the most amazing wildlife adventure in Llangrannog, Wales
I did so much, saw so much that I’ve had to split it over 2 blogs. Here’s the first and it’s all about, the sea !
As it’s the Easter Holidays I have been doing loads of fun things;
Kerry, Director, David Henshaw, Me and Steve Dann, Plant Supervisor
in this short blog I’ll tell you about some of the things I’ve been up to, including my visit to Trowell Garden Centre and my Easter gardening tips.

When I was first asked to be an RHS Ambassador by the RHS boss, Sue Biggs, I asked her what I would have to do.
Sue said it would be about inspiring more kids to get involved in gardening by perhaps visiting schools and on Monday I did just that, when I went to see Chaucer Junior School’s Garden, organised and ran by Kerry Wheatley.
