Grow amaz­ing flow­ers…

Kids Go Gardening - - Summer -

1 Choose a sunny spot that has sun for most of the day.

2 Dig your soil un­til it is loose and crumbly with no weeds. Or sim­ply fill a planter box with container mix from the gar­den cen­tre.

3 Mix in some slow re­lease fer­tiliser or blood and bone.

4 Plant your seedlings or seeds.

5 Wa­ter to keep the soil moist, ev­ery­day for the first few weeks af­ter plant­ing.

6 Most plants pro­duce loads of flow­ers. Snip off the dead ones and you will keep your plants flow­er­ing for longer.

7 Feed your flow­ers ev­ery few weeks with liq­uid fer­tiliser or worm wees from your worm farm (mixed with some wa­ter).
