Top 10 plants for kids to grow

Children are very curious and are always very eager to learn new things and get dirty with hands. Helping them to plant a tree will grow a sense of caring in them.
Gardening is also a great way to teach environmental awareness. Let them get muddy, fall over and discover the difference between a stinging nettle and a dock leaf.

Start with some of these child friendly plants so that they feel as if they have achieved something worthwhile throughout the growing process.
