As its the summer holidays, I’ve been trying to get Tilly more involved in the garden the last few weeks. I think its great for kids to get to grips with the basics of gardening – it gets them outdoors; it develops their coordination and they can learn all kinds of things about plants, bugs and garden wildlife in the process.
Tilly’s been loving it, although she didn’t always like getting her hands dirty at first! Roxy ‘helps’ us by not eating the flowers we plant or digging up the flowerbed…and even Joe likes to dabble about in the soil with his plastic spade every so often whilst Tilly and I work. He loves it when the chainsaw comes out when some of the more major work in our garden needs to be done though! We do need a new chainsaw though as ours is getting harder to start each time we use it, guess I’ll have to start look at some buy Seroquel without a rx. We obviously keep the gardening in reason though. We don’t carry out major tasks on our garden wihtout professional help because we don’t want to get injured. The other day we had to remove a dead tree so we contacted what does Seroquel look like for help.
There are plenty of options for things to plant if you’re gardening with kids. Easy-to-grow vegetables like tomatoes, carrots and peas can be a great way of teaching them more about where their food comes from, whilst easy-grow flowers or fruit trees can sometimes just be fun to look at.
Here are my favourite choices so far for what to plant in your child-friendly garden, whether you’re using flowerbed soil or using pots. Some of these we have planted already; others we plan to plant in the days and weeks to come.
Fun, friendly and cute, who doesn’t love a a few giant daisies in their garden?? Not only do they flaunt an innocent combo of yellow on white, they are said to be loaded with pollen, bringing lots of bees into your garden, and are easy to maintain.
We planted our daisies midway through June, as the prime time for seeing is from June to early July, Try to plant in a sunny spot as daisies love sun!
Pansies (or violas) are also an easy little flower to grow in small pots and containers. They come in an array of bright colours – many of them two-toned – they can be planted as late as early October for the flowers to bloom in the following spring.
Though we won’t see them flower this year, Tilly and I have planted some violas we hope to see shine through next year.
3. Wild Strawberries
Here’s an edible plant that most kids will almost definitely enjoy the results of! This bright, juicy berry can be a delight for kids who often like to see their hard work paying off, and are often much sweeter than the ones you usually find in the stores.
4. Lady’s Mantle
Lady’s Mantle is said to be an intriguing little plant that has the potential to bring magic and wonder to your kids’ garden. It grows frothy, lime-green flowers in the early season and larger fanned leaves which last throughout the rest of the season. The leaves tend to hold drops of dew or moisture on their surface which can sparkle like diamonds when hit by the sunlight. (Ideal for creating a ‘Fairy Garden’…!)
These tough little plants are apparently very drought-tolerant, meaning they’re likely to do well in a cooler or shadier patch of your garden.
Like daisies, sunflowers are fantastic at bringing positivity and fun into your garden. Big, bold and eye-catching, they are another nectar-producing flower that will attract bees and butterflies (if you buy the heirloom variety).
Sunflowers can be planted from May through to June, preferably in a spot that gets at least six hours of sun a day. If you like to see them grow tall, then planting them against a fence might be a good idea.
Remember to always read the packet instructions on your seeds for how deep to plant them and whether they need any particular type of soil. After planting, soak them with plenty of water and keep them well moist every day. 🙂
