Now is the time to think about planting seeds with your children
Now is the time to think about planting seeds with your children, when they will be able to see first hand through the days and weeks ahead the journey that vegetables take from seed to plate.
If you can get hold of some seed potatoes (share packs with friends if you want to) now is the time to get your children to plant up some ‘earlies’ in tubs. Garden Centres are still open, and Home Bargains, Wilko’s and DIY stores may still have stocks.
Whilst you’re shopping, get some other seeds: including varieties of lettuce, spinach, rocket, tomatoes, courgette, peas, beans and whatever else takes your fancy! Don’t forget to get some seed trays, pots and seed compost too.
We’ll be posting some interesting ways to involve your children in planting and nurturing your seedlings in the days ahead. GROW 💚
