Fun Gardening Activities

Growing your own herbs and vegetables is not only healthy it's fun! Here's a bunch of fun activities for you to try in your garden.

Tin Can Planting

It's so easy to recycle your cans and turn them into something beautiful to brighten up your home or garden!

  1. Wash and remove labels from your used cans then drill or punch drainage holes in the bottom of the cans.

  2. Measure and cut your chosen covering to fit around the cans.

  3. Coat the cans in glue. We like spray glue.

  4. Stick your covering material to the cans then trim the edges.

  5. Add embellishments, ribbon or other decorations to your cans.

  6. Plant your favourite flowers and herbs in your tin can planters then decorate your window sill, desk or garden.

Some ideas for coverings include fabric, adhesive book contact, string, ribbon and hessian.
