Junior Gardening at St Michael's Mount

Junior gardeners are invited to join the gardening team at St Michael's Mount garden. Families can learn about the lush sub-tropical garden and kids can pot-up a sempervivum, commonly known as the houseleek, or the ‘liveforever’. Children can enjoy getting their hands dirty and then take the plant home with them so they can watch it grow.
