Gar­den­ing with flow­ers is like paint­ing a pic­ture.

Kids Go Gardening - - Summer -

Grow your favourite colours and use them like paints to cre­ate some­thing stun­ning! It might be a beau­ti­ful gift for some­one spe­cial. Add ex­tra colour with a hand painted pot. Up-cy­cled tin cans make great plant pots. Be­fore you start paint­ing get help to make some drainage holes in the bot­tom and make sure there are no sharp edges on the top edge of the can. Once the paint is dry fill the can with pot­ting mix or seed rais­ing mix ready for your seeds or seedlings. You can grow your own flow­ers from seed. Or, if you’re in a hurry, you can get flower seedlings from the gar­den cen­tre all ready to plant in your own spe­cial pot.
