How to Design a Children's Garden |

How to Design a Children's Garden "It's said that gardens grow children, and this is particularly true when
a child's first experiences with gardening are fun and successful.
Nurturing plants and the sharing the bounty are great confidence
builders for budding green thumbs. Indulge your child's curiosity in
bugs, worms and sprouting seeds, and offer plants that mature quickly
with surprising results. You can also help stimulate interest and a takecharge
attitude by including your child in each step of garden planning."

Wow, I am so happy about this chapter, gardening is one of my favorite hobbies. My husband is always amazed when we go somewhere and I just start naming off the flowers growing in a garden. I have plants in my home, they make it complete and outside they beautify the home. I think my daughter is still young but she is growing up around all different varieties of plants as did my other children. I hope this instills a love of gardening in all three of my children, honestly I am still amazed by the new growth that pops up every spring!
