When Paddington starts to make a list of all the nice things he can think of about being a bear and living with the Browns he is sure to include ‘the garden’. Paddington feels very lucky to have such a nice garden, especially as he has his own little patch in it, to keep him out of mischief!
But when Paddington is around things are rarely simple and he soon finds that gardening is not as easy as he had first thought. He sets out, with a jar of marmalade of course, to look for ideas and ends up in a building site behind the Browns’ garden. He is sure that if he climbs up a nearby ladder he will get an excellent view of his own little garden and that will help him with his design.
Unfortunately, bears, building sites and marmalade don’t really mix. But, as usual, Paddington is able to turn circumstances to his advantage and come out on top after all!

“When Paddington tries his paw at gardening there are both interesting and colourful results”
Children’s Buyer’s Guide Autumn Books
For Paddington, one of the nicest things about being a bear and living with the Brown family is being able to share their lovely garden.
But gardens don't just happen, and the one at number thirty-two Windsor Gardens keeps the whole family busy, so Paddington is only too pleased to lend a paw when they give him a chance.
He may not have 'green fingers', but the fact that paws and fingers are never far apart leads to some unexpectedly colourful results during National Garden Week.
