Daughter of a farmer and market gardener so have always had a connection with the outdoors, whether it was keeping animals or producing fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Along with my work at Hayes Garden World I also have a smallholding, mainly breeding rare breed pigs. I gained an HND and BSc in Conservation and Environmental Land Management, as a result I am an ardent environmentalist and have a keen interest in environmentally friendly gardening. In my time at Hayes I worked for several years in the Outdoor Plant and Houseplant areas

Baby Barbecuers

You can’t start barbecuing early enough!

One way to get children interested in eating good wholesome food, which hopefully will stay with them through life, is to make cooking interesting and fun. Weber have come up with a solution to this in the form of barbecue toys, just like dad’s or mum’s real one. The imitation Kettle and Smokey Joe BBQs come with a range of foods, albeit plastic. The food includes fish and vegetables to reinforce the healthy eating aspect, as well as the BBQ staples of steak and all the ingredients to make a burger. Add some tools and the kids are all ready to practice for when they’re old enough to do the real thing.

If you are a barbecuing family then these are the ideal Christmas or birthday present. If you’re not a barbecuer then these mini bits of kit are the ideal start to make food interesting. Just don't try and use real charcoal as they are just plastic!
