Play in the Garden

You may remember gardening as a child and have precious memories of play in the garden.  If you also want your children to love gardens and gardening then:

  1. You can show how much you love your own garden, even if it just consists of a few pots of herbs.  It is fun to garden and grow with your kids.
  2. Surround them with all sorts of gardening and outdoor projects, small and ambitious.  Some solely for children, but others for the whole family.
  3. Consider how you can give your children good garden experiences, both with gardening and outdoor play in the garden.
