How hard is it to grow a strawberry garden?
Growing a strawberry garden can be a rewarding experience but it may prove to be quite the undertaking. Strawberry plants require rich, well-drained soil and plenty of sun, ideally six to eight hours a day.
As they are prone to both pests and various diseases, it is important that the space and other conditions are conducive to plant health.
Depending on the location, those looking to establish a strawberry garden may also require irrigation systems for supplemental water and protection from extreme weather conditions.
This does not have to be overly complicated or expensive; some simple accessorizing such as bird netting or shade cloths can go a long way in keeping these plants healthy during all stages of their life cycle.
How can I start a garden for my kids to work on?
Gardening is an excellent way for children to engage with nature and with their own ingenuity. A successful children’s garden project involves designing an inviting space that is tailored to the interests of your child or children.
This can include selecting what to grow, designing a potting bench where they can work, and involving them in daily tasks related to watering and caring for the plants.
It also helps to consider a few choice tools like trowels, rakes, shovels, and gloves that are specifically sized for young hands.
With access to age-appropriate tools at their disposal, children will have more confidence when tending the soil and handling their plants.
In addition to emphasizing responsibility and connection with nature, this type of activity can sharpen problem-solving skills since gardeners often face challenges related to pests, weather conditions, plant diseases, and lack of nutrition in the soil.
Setting up a garden project for your kids opens up opportunities for teaching them valuable principles about growing things as well as empowerment through autonomy in decision-making regarding what types of plants are planted in their own backyard space.
