Now make it!

Saturday Star - - SPORT -

THE FIRST step in this project is to re­move the seat of the chair. The seat is prob­a­bly sta­pled on with a sta­ple gun, so be care­ful not to dam­age the rest of the chair as you lift the seat­ing away. Our at­ten­tion will now move to the hang­ing bas­ket. Get your kids to fill the hang­ing bas­ket with pot­ting soil, keep­ing it only semi-full. (This en­sures that the hang­ing bas­ket isn’t com­pletely full and will leave enough space to plant your flow­ers, and still make sure that their roots are com­fort­able and sup­ported.) Help your little ones to place the plants gently in the hang­ing bas­ket, cov­er­ing the roots with soil and gently press­ing the soil down to make sure the plant is well sup­ported. Give the plant a good amount of wa­ter, en­sur­ing the soil is prop­erly soaked.

You can now place the bas­ket into the chair, fill­ing the seat­ing area with beau­ti­ful flow­ers. Remember to give your flow­ers the right amount of wa­ter and a little bit of sun­light ev­ery day. ● For more in­for­ma­tion on bring­ing Life to your gar­den, see www.lifeis­agar­ or join the con­ver­sa­tion on our Face­book page: www.face­ lifeis­agar­densa.
