Introducing young children to the natural world and the great outdoors is crucial when they are growing up and what better way to do it than at the world renowned Chelsea Flower Show, the royal family certainly did.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the historic garden festival, with Kate unveiling her Back to Nature garden, while letting their young family play in a number of the impressive green escapes.

The family spent the afternoon playing in the Back to Nature garden, designed by Kate and landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White, in conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
Inspired by childhood memories and with families in mind, this woodland garden is a place to retreat from the world, to play, learn and discover as well as create special family memories.
The aim of the Duchess of Cambridge’s garden was to highlight the benefits of what the natural world brings to mental and physical well-being.
Not to mention help introduce younger people to the wonders of gardening.
The Back to Nature garden, and the royal visit is hoped will increase interest in discovering the wonders of the great outdoors, while also encouraging parents to introduce their young children to gardens and the natural world.
Following the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, much of the Back to Nature planting, along with some of the landscaping, will go to an NHS Mental Health Trust, as part of a national competition run by the RHS.
