Gardening ideas for a preschooler?

19 years ago


I'm new to this web site -- it seems great!

My question: I have an eager-to-garden preschooler. I also have a small container/window box garden (flowers in window boxes, veggies from flats in containers) on my roof deck in our city condo.

I should add, I'm a beginning and not-too-confident gardener.

Does anyone have any ideas for how I can involve my child in gardening? I'm not sure I want her to "help" me with the flowers as I'm a little uncertain myself.

But, I do want to encourage her interest.

Is it enough to have her "help" me plant the veggie flats? Should we start something together from seed?

Any ideas?

Thank you very much!
