Toddler's Greenhouse Area

I love my greenhouse, I potter around in it nearly every day and Poppet loves to join me and help. Today their daddy made a wee area that she could claim as her own - this is what he came up with, I absolutely love it!

At the end of the greenhouse he put up a lower level bench and secured it, and then I collected all her gardening bits and bobs to lay out. I gave her a modular seed tray, her trowel and fork, her gardening gloves, pea and pumpkin seed packets, watering cans, plant pots, toilet rolls, egg and yoghurt cartons, and some sweetcorn and fuchsia plants. I also put a bucket of compost on the floor next to her bench.

Her Papa took her down to see it when she woke up from her nap, and I think she adores this area almost as much as I do! I envisage many hours are going to be spent here this summer and I'm so happy she can share a hobby with me. This afternoon she planted up some pea and pumpkin seeds in her little tray with some help from Papa, and watered them about 5 times. She was very happy!


  1. Lovely seeing little ones learning about how to care for plants and develop an interest by sharing the learning with grown ups!

    1. I know I love how enthusiastic she is. Soon as we go out the backdoor she heads for the greenhouse!
