Growing a Gardening Kid


Owen’s Kid Gardening Tips:

  • Use fast growing & high yield plants like Beans, Strawberry and Primrose
  • Plant Directly from Seeds because kids love seeing plants grow from nothing
  • Container Gardening is Great Option. Get creative with fun containers like wagons, boots, or anything colorful
  • Have them make a schedule for Watering, Weeding, and Tracking Progress
  • Schedule gardening duties in small doses to avoid stretching beyond attention spans
