Taylor Swift has been doing some ''major gardening''.

The 26-year-old singer has been rolling back the years by helping her parents, Scott and Andrea, out with some horticultural work, just as they used to do back when the family lived on a Christmas tree farm in Cumru Township, Pennsylvania.

The blonde stunner - who is dating actor Tom Hiddleston - filmed an Instagram video of her gardening work and called the clip ''garden party''.

She said: ''Doing some major gardening. This is what we used to do, back on the farm.''

Fans could see Taylor mucking in alongside Andrea, who was hard at work, and Scott smiled for the camera.

But it appears the 'Style' hitmaker's parents have started growing different vegetables to what they used to harvest back in the day.

Taylor added: ''Except not with kale.''

The star's parents relocated to Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, when Taylor was nine and then again to Nashville, Tennessee, when she was 14 to give her a better chance of making it as a country music star.

It's not the only time Taylor has stepped foot in a garden recently though as last month she held a star-studded Fourth of July party in the grounds of her multi-million dollar Rhode Island home.

Several big-name stars were in attendance at the bash, including Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Ruby Rose, 'The Shallows' actress Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds.
