The Pocket Garden

The Pocket GardenOn the window sill in Courtney’s bathroom in London sits a little sunflower growing in a bag and every time I look at it it makes me so happy! Sun, new plants growing, birds singing in the garden, woo-hooo — it’s springtime!
It must be so weird for our friends on the other side of the globe to read this, who are getting ready for winter!
Anyway, the little plant growing on Courtney’s window sill comes from The Pocket Garden, a lovely company that sells cool little bags filled with compost and seeds. The only thing that’s needed for the plant to grow is a pair of scissors to cut open the package, some water on a regular basis and a sunny spot! Very cute to give as a gift (through Send-a-Thought), or to teach your children a thing or two about nature.

It’s so true — it makes such a difference to have a little green plant sitting on your window sill! And my boys love looking at the progress of the plants.
Hooray for spring!

The other great thing for kids are the Eggling range which now includes herbs. We put one in our daughters Easter basket.

Funnily enough I have just come back from the florist and bought my daughter her first plant. So exciting for kids!
