Cuke in a Bottle: How'd that cucumber get in there? Your kids will know the answer: they grew it! #SchoolGardens
Turn old newspaper into seedling pots. They can be planted directly into the ground as the paper will eventually biodegrade. You can form them by wrapping the paper around a jamjar or similar, or there are 'devices' that can be bought to make the pots. I think using the gardening supplement that comes with the weekend papers would be quite a nice touch :D
Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier links to great gardening with kids ideas
