Create A Kitchen Herb Garden With The Kids
Teach the kids about growing and cooking at the same time by creating a potted kitchen garden.
For hassle-free sowing, use Mr Fothergill’s Seed Mats Easy Sow.
The pre-sown paper mats are 8cm in diameter and are a good fit for 9cm terracotta pots, which are the ideal size for small hands.
Get the kids to write the names of the herbs on Paddle Pop sticks and put them in each pot as plant tags, so they know what to harvest.
TIP Don’t bury the mat too far down. Add just enough potting mix so that it is no longer visible.
