A love for gardening doesn’t happen overnight; it’s often introduced and fostered from a young age. If you’re looking to instill your passion for gardening in your children, why not get them started now? Give them their own plot of land in your yard and teach them how to plant, maintain and enjoy the fruits of their labor, while also teaching them the importance of the task at hand. It will not only give you a shared hobby, but also start a future generation of gardeners that our planet desperately needs.
To give your child the best chance for success, we don’t recommend starting him or her off with infamously fussy plants, such as Itoh Peony or Tea Roses. Although this could be one way to teach kids about gardening, it’s best to start with easy-to-grow, quick-blooming varieties that will impress in the first season. This way, you and your little one can check the garden every weekend and track the growth progress, as well as cut and bring the prized blooms (or crops) inside to enjoy.
In preparation for spring planting, we’ve put together 10 of our favorite varieties for a kid’s first garden. All of these flowers and vegetables are extremely easy to grow and should do well in any sunny spot with well-draining soil.
Even with a little help from mom or dad, the pride in the success of a child’s first garden is worth the extra time and effort. Be sure to take photos of the progress each week to look at the “before” and “after” pictures at the end of the growing season. Plus, you can spend the colder months planning for next spring – don’t be afraid to suggest more challenging varieties the older she gets!
