Children are naturally attracted to gardening. It must be something in their DNA. For many apartment residents the lack of backyard space can give few gardening opportunities for children. The April/May issue of Hallmark Magazine shows you how easy it can be to bring an indoor garden into your home. Kris Wetherbee, of Hallmark Magazine, offers suggestions for four types of indoor gardens: Exotic Escape, which has fig and coffee trees; Desert Garden with aloe, crassula and a sandy base; Blooming Bright which features one blooming plant; and Into the Woods with moss, fern and ivy. What’s great about these indoor gardens is that most of them need little maintenance.
Hallmark recommends you gather up some bell jars and dishes, purchase your plants, and let the gardens go nuts. Make it a family affair by having children pick the plants and flowers, dig and scoop out dirt and of course, water them. Do you have an indoor garden? What plants or flowers do you recommend?
