How to Garden With Your Kids

Gardening with your little ones encourages family participation, learning, independence (and they love getting their hands dirty!)

Show your kids how to weed an area – pull the weeds up slowly, ensuring that most of the roots have been pulled up too.

Show them how to sow seeds or get them to choose their favourite seedlings to plant and care for – an ideal opportunity for them to learn how things grow!

Creepy crawlies are fun for kids! Teach your kids which are beneficial and which might harm your plants.

Let them pick items of garden decor, like garden gnomes or get them to paint their own rocks for the garden.

A children’s rake is the perfect tool to teach them bout keeping leaves for mulching purposes.

Visit your local GCA garden centre for garden tools made for children!
