Container GardenStart your container gardens in the spring! Be creative! Decorate your containers! Chives in Boots? Tomatoes in Baskets? A Sunflower in a barrel? Spuds in a Tub? For information on how to start your container garden visit www.kidsgardening.com (in the search bar on this website enter 'kids container gardening' then scroll down to the Activities section. Lots of different info there.)

Warning: Please do not plant vegetables or fruit in rubber containers because they will leach chemicals into the soil. So, no spuds in tires, just tubs.
