Great Tips for Gardening With Kids

Gardening with Kids

We’re starting to plan what we’re going to plant in our raised bed for spring right now and can’t wait to get our hands dirty. One of the best parts about gardening, for me, is the fact that the kids get involved in every step from planning, planting, and growing.

Over the years of gardening with them I’ve come to find that gardening with kids isn’t as hard as it sounds. In fact, it can be quite fun! The bonding we do over our garden has deepend our relationship and has acted as a teaching tool for life lessons.

Below are some great tips for gardening with kids that you can use if you’re just starting or have been gardening with your kids for a while.

  1. I really like your idea to decorate the pots like that. The kids will love it! Already started to grow some tomatoes and we will do more in the next weeks.

  2. Awesome, thanks! Our 9-year-old really wants to grow stuff. I bought him the little planter with see through tubes so you can watch the roots grow (can’t remember name of it – an as seen on TV thing). We haven’t even had much luck with that though lol. I suppose supposed to remove a couple from each tube so there’s only one (leave the one doing the best) but not sure how to do that. Anyways, my question is – what would you suggest for something easy to grow this time of year heading into spring? I have a small glass planter bowl with drainage to a plate attached on bottom – maybe five inches deep or so. Are there any foods or herbs you could suggest for this to set on the porch or next to it?

  3. Thanks for sharing. I read many of your blog posts, cool, your blog is very good.
