Growing with the girls…

I think there is nothing more important than teaching young children where fruit and vegetables comes from.


My 3 year old twin daughters Freya & Olivia both love helping out in the garden, whether it’s doing a bit of weeding or sowing seeds, they are always willing to lend a hand. Due to the tough times the world is currently going through in regards to the Coronavirus, the girls have been spending more and more time outside in the garden.

This week the girls have sown some Peppers & Carrot seeds kits, which we had free from Marks & Spencer food hall. The kits came complete with a biodegradable pot, soil tablet, seed mat and a handy pop out plant label so you don’t forget what’s been planted

The girls love to watch the soil tablet growing on size. The seed mat was super easy to sow and we didnt end up with loads of wasted seeds on the greenhouse floor for once. We popped the seeds into the heated propagator for a few days until they started to germinate.


It’s been a couple of days since the girls planted their seeds and they’ve already started to grow beautifully. I’ll make sure we keep everyone up to date on their progress with plenty of photos on Instagram and a blog update later on in the year.
