Children’s Gardening

To help encourage our next generation of gardeners, we stock a variety of items that are specifically designed with children in mind, such as brightly coloured gardening tools and accessories suitable for children aged 3-7 years old.

Get growing with our Suttons ‘Fun to Grow’ fruit and vegetable seeds, easy to grow and specially designed for 4-7 year olds. In season we also stock a range of bulbs, herbs, fruit and vegetable plants that are also easy to grow.
We also stock a range of books, toys and games perfect to keep little ones entertained.

School Visits

Dean’s want to encourage Yorkshire’s next generation of gardeners and we think our centres are a great place to bring the family and inspire budding youngsters. We’ve always supported local schools in developing their gardens and welcome school visits to the Garden Centre.

Did you know we already offer schools a 10% discount on the majority of items we sell providing all invoices are paid within 30 days. Also if you are building a new school garden or working on a particular gardening project, we may also be able to offer a contribution towards this.

If you would like to organise a visit we have staff who are happy to show groups around. We can also incorporate a particular topic in the tour if asked for in advance. Please contact us for further details.

We always welcome feedback following your visit, here are just a few kind words received from recent visits.

“Thank you for accommodating us on our class visit today. We all had so much fun exploring the plants and buying some herbs for our sensory garden”

Children’s Weather Diary

Why not start a weather diary, each day recording what happens throughout the week. Why not compare it to the weather forecast on television, is it the same or was it very different? To download a copy of our weather diary click on the link below. You could also a plastic cup outside in your garden to see how much rainfall there has been.
