Inside gardening

The children are very keen to get out and planting but it is grey and I doubt whether much would germinate. So we have to make do with indoor gardening.

We have the hyacinths that they planted in the autumn

and new planting.

Cress-we had egg and cress this week so it is time to plant more.

Sprouting mung beans, to go with next week's Five in a Row book,

and indoor salad-planted outdoors.

Any more ideas for winter gardening?


  1. Have you thought of trying an Amaryllis? They come up pretty quickly and are good to watch.

  2. No, good point, I had forgotten all about them. Thank you for the reminder.
