: Help! :)
: Here are my ideas so far:
: - She could grow sweet peas up a mesh covered wooden fire-escape. In
: my experience sweet peas are practically fool-proof and have the
: appropriate qualities for enthusing children
Just don't let her eat the seeds - they are posionous.
: - Marigolds, companion planted in my vege Garden alongside the path.
: Again practically indestructable, and should give us lots of fun
: choosing varieties for beautiful colours. Also harvesting the seeds
: and replanting the following year should go down well.
These plants are also posionous. Don't let her put any parts of this
plant in her mouth.
: Any comments on those? I'm also trying to think of some veges she
: could plant, perhaps carrots. Any other things which have been a hit
: with young children? I keep thinking of sunflowers, but I'm not sure,
Sun flowers have been a hit with small children in the area I onced lived,
as was pumpkin (the harvesting of the seeds was great fun, and Halloween
has a great use for pumpkins).
