The children were beyond excited about finally getting to plant the seeds. We were trying not to take over and control the planting, it was so hard with their keen little fingers to stop a handful of seeds getting shoved in rather than a couple. We got them to read the packets carefully and take responsibility for what needed to be planted. Suzie let the kids write their own seed labels, but Jen took neat control of hers. The Fothergills seeds were so easy to use, the instructions were very clear and simple to follow. There’s more information on their website too and some great videos that the kids loved watching. We used seed trays with propagator lids from Webbs and it all felt so professional rather than just a load of old pots. Even though we’ve not seen a seed pop through yet, we were so proud to get them all planted up.
