That was the message from the Duchess of Cambridge on Tuesday when she made an appearance in Wisley, Surrey, for the opening of the Royal Horticultural Society's Back to Nature garden.

Fall is just around the corner, and Kate Middleton is taking in these last few weeks of summer by opening a new garden for children and families to enjoy.

She confessed: "I am not as green fingered as many of you here, but I was passionate about creating a garden that inspired children and adults alike to get back to nature and reap the positive mental and physical health benefits that it can bring".

"RHS Garden Wisley is our flagship garden, welcoming over a million visitors a year, many of whom are families with young children, who we want to become the next generation of gardeners", said Sue Biggs, RHS Director-General.

The duchess said that as a parent, she's learned first-hand how important it is to foster children's development in all aspects. "We build the blocks, the foundations, for future success and happiness later in their lives". Dylan's mother Katie Vinton later recalled the exchange between the Duchess and her son, revealing: "Kate asked, 'Are you a tiger?' and Dylan replied, 'No, it's just face paint'".

The duchess toured the festival, which had a village fete feel, watching toddlers trying their luck at a coconut shy, while nearby was a cake stall covered with sweet treats.

She was overheard by royal reporters telling one mom, "My little boy [1-year-old Prince Louis] loves smelling the flowers and being out in the garden".

She wore a stunning floral dress as danced away with youngsters in the wilderness garden which encourages children to play, discover and relax outdoors.

Kate Middleton isn't afraid to get her hands dirty.

"We are grateful to The Duchess for the incredible impact that this "Back to Nature" collaboration has had". It includes features from her Chelsea garden, such as a hollow log and boulders from the waterfall, but also contains a "bouncing forest", where children can jump on trampolines, and two treehouses linked by a walkway with slides.
