Celebrate Spring And Start Your Indoor Garden Now!

The first official day of Spring has come and gone, so let’s celebrate! I love the hope that this season brings, knowing that it will bring new life and colour to our yards and communities.  While we wait patiently (or not) for summer to arrive, why not plant some indoor seedlings and start planning a summer garden? Being involved in the growing process can be fun for children of all ages and March/April are the perfect months to start. Incorporate an indoor garden into your homeschooling schedule by keeping a log of the seedlings. You can also introduce the lifecycle of a plant into a science lesson. The kids will love to watch their plants grow and this could potentially consume hours and hours over the next few weeks. Plus . . . you might get some delicious food to enjoy by the end of summer!

If you’ve never had much of a green thumb, this is a great time to learn with indoor seedlings, succulents and house plants. Veseys Seeds is a great resource for tips on all gardening inquiries. If you’re not sure where to start, they offer lots of pointers on starting seeds indoors and Canadian hardiness zones and frost dates.
