How Does Your Garden Grow? In a Greenhouse of Course! #HDYGG

How does your garden grow planted seeds

So How Does your Garden Grow??? Well ours NOW grows in a Greenhouse!

Daulton, my oldest son has been taking a deep interest in the garden lately which has stemmed from him asking me why im snapping pictures of our flowers and even weeds. Which of course im snapping away to take part in Annie’s How does your Garden Grow? Linky every thursday. Hes been out in the Garden watering the plants, de-weeding and cutting all the stray grass that the lawnmower cant reach.

So whilst we were out at the shops the other day he just popped out with, “can i have a greenhouse to grow my own fruit and vegetables?”, i was stunned it wasn’t like him, he likes to be a hermit and if we allowed him to play on the Xbox for the rest of his life he probably would!. So i replied with yes of course.

How does your garden grow in a greenhouse
Here is our little Greenhouse, we did spot one in The Range for £39.99, a quick google on our phones found an identical one in Pound Stretchers for £14.99!!! Can you Guess where we bought it from? lol

how does your garden grow herbs

I bought some lovely smelly herb shrubs, Lavender, Thyme and Primrose… They smell absolutely gorgeous, I’ve kept them in the greenhouse until i decide where to put them .

how does your garden grow watercress

So in the big pot at the left we have Watercress ( i figured getting him some watercress would be good, as there seem to grow fairly quick, so will give some quick reward for his efforts)

In the Trays we have alsort, Peppers, Tomato and some beans (cant remember for the life of me what exactly there were lol)

how does your garden grow lettuce and strawberries

In the trays we have lettuce, carrots and something else haha (its a good job we like surprises)

In the big pots to the right we have Strawberry plants, i hope we planted them the right way up :/ I think we will have to move these shortly as our next door neighbour who is quite handy with greenhouse and growing tomato’s etc, suggested to grow them in the garden but cover with netting. So we may do this at the weekend :).

    Our garden is a mess at the moment as it’s so boggy meaning it’s hard to even cut the grass 🙁 can’t wait to get working on it this summer and get it looking nice! 🙂

    That looks great and a bargain, too! It’s so lovely when kids take an interest like this.

    I start with good intentions of labelling the varieties of things I grow, but then I move the trays to water them or pot plants on and they get all jumbled up. It’s at that point I start to grow my special crop named “lucky dip” – and mostly it works out in the end!

    Good luck with your growing!

    Ah it great that he’s showing an interest, in my experience they show even more interest when things that can be eaten start to grow 😉 Nice bargain on the greenhouse, I’ve been hankering one myself. Smashing close up of the buggly thingy!

    Thanks for joining in again xx
