    Crocus_chrysanthus_Goldilocks (1)Working in the garden with your children can be really rewarding and a great thing to do – but how do you get them interested in it in the first place? Here are some tips on how to get your children excited about the garden.

    Make it manageable

    If you’re gardening with children, it’s probably best to keep things simple. Give them a small section of garden to work on and encourage everything they do.

    Get dirty

    It almost goes without saying that the majority of children rather like the dirt. As well as choosing your own bulbs let them choose the bulbs they would like to grow; give them the chance to help you with the planting. They’re sure to appreciate the chance to get mucky – and it helps to make the process much more fun.

    Watch things grow

    Probably one of the best ways to help your children get into gardening is to buy bulbs that they can nurture and watch as they grow over time; by getting them to choose the bulbs they want to grow will really keep them interested in the outcome; let them have a look around the Peter Nyssen site so they can see what the ‘finished’ flowers look like first.

    Planting results

    It can be very rewarding for children to nurture the bulbs to flowering; when in flower they can pick the results of there growing effort and present to family members. Have fun with children in the garden.
