Hi yellowclare,

Maybe some giant pumpkins?

Children also love the more unusual plants, like Mimosa pudica, which reacts to the lightest touch, or growing bananas or palm trees from seed?

Strawberries are also a sure bet 🙂

Ideas for seeds for children to grow


I would like to encourage my children to grow some seeds this spring. What are the best varieties to try and when can we start sowing them?

Many thanks
