Meet Clarence, a young gardener’s apprentice with an appetite for flies and mischief!

Clarence was just a seedling when he first discovered his talent for gardening, especially hunting all the pesky greenhouse pests. He has grown taller and stronger on a steady diet of buzzing flies, moreish moths and crawly caterpillars - gardening is easy when your are a growing Peckish Plant.

Now he is ready to turn over a new leaf and pick up some new skills to add to his repertoire. What do you think he should have a go at next? Knitting? Poetry? Rock Music? Or something else entirely?

Whatever it is, he can’t wait to start!
