Hi, my 2.8yo ds is taking an interest in gardening, hes currently planting 'seeds'. I was wondering what seeds/flowers would be good to grow with him and are easy to care for. I'm not at all green fingered. TIA
lettuces - seeds come up really quickly and the eating is a novelty (ds doesnt particularly like lettuce but likes the speed at which they grow and will as a result eat some: we eat the rest) nasturtiums are dead easy, basically grow like weeds, and have big bright flowers which are usually popular. things with big seeds (like sunflowers, nasturtiums) are usually easiest as easier for small people to pick up at this time of year you need stuff that grows fast! for next spring you'd have more choice. strawberries might be worth a go (plant small plants, not growing from seed) or tomatoes (seed or for less hassle small plug plants).
