New Veg Plots Promise to get children excited about their 5-a-day! Don’t resort to paint and crayons to turn your children’s fingers and plates green this Spring Bank holiday. Let a new range of veg pots and plots get your children enthusiastically growing and eating their 5-a-day.
Although we know that children who grow vegetables are more likely to have a positive attitude to healthy eating, few parents have the time, space or know-how for a vegetable garden – the new ‘Grow’ range of compact edible pots and plots might just be the answer.
The children’s ‘Grow’ range of veg growing kits each include self-watering pots, seeds, plant food, a growing diary and jargon-free instructions. They give budding gardeners their own manageable vegetable plot without parents having to spend hours studying how to become green-fingered experts.
The ‘Grow’ kits even turn fingers green by automatically feeding and watering plants. Simply keep the kit’s reservoir topped-up and plants are provided with the water they need, when they need it, preventing over-watering and under-watering – even during holidays. Children can use their ‘Grow Diary’ to record how much water has been taken from the reservoir, so they quickly learn to understand how the amount of water plants need differs according to soil dampness, plant size, light levels and weather conditions.
Lack of green space is no problem. With ‘Grow’ kits ranging in size from a windowsill plot to a one metre long mini greenhouse, you really don’t need any green space to get your children growing and eating their 5-a-day.
Whole meals can be grown on a couple of windowsills, with tomatoes, beetroot and chard all thriving particularly well along with the usual salad leaves and herbs. Whilst if you have a 55cm square space outside on a patio, decking or yard you can add taller and larger plants such as beans, peas, cucumbers and cabbages as well as larger tomato plants.
As for getting your children excited about growing their own veg, what child doesn’t like sticking their hands in soil? Just in case though, the ‘Grow’ kits’ seeds and easy-to-follow growing instructions feature the incredible edibles characters. These super heroes are sure to inspire your children to grow and eat their super veg.
The Greenhouse Sensation team is so confident that their ‘Grow’ kits enable anyone to grow their own that they offer an Incredible Edible guarantee. They promise that in the very unlikely event that a customer doesn’t raise a healthy crop they will provide free seeds and plant food as well as one-to-one advice to get them back on track.
