    The pleasures of gardening

    To teach your child the basics of gardening, show them how to germinate beans or lentils on damp cotton. In 3 or 4 days, the roots and stems start to grow. Offer him plantings on his scale by choosing small planters or by delimiting a corner in the garden. Choose tools (rake, shovel, etc.) made of plastic and with round ends. Let him handle the potting soil with his bare hands or with gloves suitable for his size. To complete the outfit: boots, an apron and an outfit that can get dirty. Finally, select plants that grow quickly (radish with round roots, peas, nasturtiums, etc.) or that are already in bloom, or even with leaves (salads, tomatoes, etc.) because it is difficult for a toddler to wait. several weeks that a stem emerges. Not a lot of room on the windowsill? Think of bulbs (tulip, narcissus…), cherry tomatoes and aromatic plants.
