Welcome to Lulu & Tilda’s Garden Blog

This used to be a stuffy old gardening blog that our mummy & daddy used to write. So we (Lulu aged 5 and Tilda aged 2) decided that we  could do a much betterer job than them. So this is our super-dooper, fabilicious gardening blog instead. Thank you for reading (mummy said we must always say thanks). Love Lulu & Tilda xx
