How does your garden grow?

Snow peas are a good plant for kinder gardens.

A vegetable patch is a great addition to any early childhood play space. Children get so much out of tending the plants, observing them grow, and then tasting the produce.

There is a whole special skillset to being a great gardener, but it is also easy enough to start off small, and learn as you go.  The internet is a good source of horticultural advice – keen gardeners are one of those categories of people who have embraced blogging.

In vegetable gardening, it is important to gather local knowledge, as climate is such a central factor.

In Melbourne now, it is spring and the perfect time for planting.  Local nurseries and hardware shops will give you an idea what to plant – the seedlings that are in stock are the plant of the moment.

Snow peas are a good choice for a kinder garden.  They grow fast, so you will get to to eat some before you break up for Christmas, and they can be eaten straight from the garden without preparation.
