I have just tried growing your Victorian colossal pea, with fantastic results. We have a small garden and my wife found these thinking we would get more for the same space as the 'normal' peas. Problem is they are so heavily laden with pods they are tearing from the support frame and I have had to tie them up with soft string. A problem that is very welcome. I have just sown more in the greenhouse to plant out for a later crop. I have also tried your coloured carrots but too soon to try, but I will be ordering more seeds and greater variety in the future. Best wishes

Whilst many children's gardening tools are no better than toys, with our selection at Victoriana, this is definitely NOT the case!
Forget flimsy toy children's gardening tools that bend and break - if you're looking for high quality children's gardening equipment that will do the job properly and last for years to come, then you'll definitely want to peruse this listing! More...
There are no design compromises with our children's gardening tools, as they are generally supplied as smaller proportioned versions of their adult 'standard' or full sized counterparts. Our selection of kids gardening tools are anything but novelties. Each listing has been chosen based on much the same criteria as our adult tools - their quality, durability and our experiences that ensure that they're fit for purpose! The youngest (and smallest!) members of the Shirley family assure us that the tools listed within this category are easy to use and comfortable to hold for little hands.
In fact, if you're keen to get younger family members interested in any aspect of gardening, a gift of a children's gardening fork or gardening trowel is a great way to get them interested and inspired. Alternatively, a selection of children's gardening equipment will make for an excellent addition to any school classroom.
Generally, we recommend that these tools are suitable for children aged between 3 and 10 years old, and due to their sturdy nature any children's garden tool should always be used under adult supervision.
