Both of my children love gardening. They always want to help me water the plants and pull up weeds. Now the weather is getting warmer, it is the perfect time to get out into the garden to give it some TLC. Last year, we planted broad beans directly in the soil but it was eaten by slugs as they began to grow. This year, I bought a seed tray to help our flowers grow first before we re-plant them.
MoneySupermarket teamed up with +BritMums to offer mummy bloggers the chance to have outdoor fun with their kids and win some great kit for the garden in the process! I really fancied this challenge, to get the children out in the garden and to teach them the basics of growing a plant. This is our outdoor adventure.
Firstly, they filled the seed tray with compost about three quarters full. Then they sprinkled the Pretty Flower Family seeds thinly across the individual seed holes. Next, they covered it with more soil and watered it. A plastic cover was placed on top of the seed tray to prevent any unwanted pests.
