Let’s make a garden
Below are step-by-step ideas to help you along
Make a plan
Here’s a wee video to help you: https://youtu.be/cKiBZnFPTkI
Here is the created plan:
Find a box
Make the box bonny
Make the box waterproof
Now for some plants
Add a baby tree
Add the tree to the garden
I made sure I dug the seedling up with its roots and now I’m giving it water
Add a fence
Use wee sticks to make a fence, then put string or wool round the posts for the wire
Add a stone path
A stone for a seat
Add some greenery with carrot tops
Add the green and blue
Fill in the gaps
Find a wee plant or seeds to grow
One Seed Forward might provide if you email 🙂
I found a wee mint plant
Finished – let’s watch it grow
I’d love to see some of your gardens, if you’d like to send pictures to my facebook page 🙂
