If you still haven’t made it out yet and started your garden, don’t worry, it’s not too late. We’ve got some tips for you to make gardening a bit more fun:

  1. Get plant identifier stakes that suite your personality. Are you more of literal person? Are you creative? Are you a DIYer? There are stakes for everyone.

  2. Make a date night out of it! Go to your local nursery and choose your plants together, go home and plant them, sit on your front porch swing and talk about how you’ll be taking care of them together. You might even want to purchase some Tuinlantaarns (garden lanterns) to set the mood and allow you to admire your handy work well into the evening.

  3. Meditate. If you like routines, gardening is right up your alley. Think of it, you’ve just watered your plants and you’re enjoying the outdoors with a cup of tea and a good read. Just imagine relaxing in the peace of your garden on a beautiful interlocking patio overlooking your plants…perfection! Ahh, the peace and the quiet. Now, is a wonderful time to sit back and enjoy a bit of the simpler life, thinking on what’s really important.

  4. Teach the kiddos. Show them how to turn on the water hose and fill a bucket or fill your GreenStalk. Create a weekly journal for them to chart the progress of the plants and describe the textures, tastes (if it’s edible!) and appearance. How neat would it be to look back at these journals in a 5-year span?

  5. Choose plants that go along with your decor. Have a bright and cheery home (zinnias or verbenas) or a beachy oasis (think alliums or african lillys)?

How do you make gardening fun in your home?

    Awesome post =) Gardening is hard to beat for promoting well-rounded development in youngsters. Playing in the dirt increases happiness, and enhances learning. Mother Dirt knows best.

    I’m looking forward to having my grandkids over to plant seeds in my new Greenstalk in a few months. I want to start them young and learn to love growing things.

    […] Yes, gardening can be fun. Pulling weeds can be oddly satisfying, and many people report nurturing feelings towards plants that they have grown. You can even make a date night out of it or teach the kiddos how to plant. […]
