Gum Boot Herb Garden for Kids
*This post contains affiliate links
We love gardening with kids, especially in Summer so we were excited to take part in the Kids in the Garden blog hop challenge. We have previously had a lot of fun with our wheelbarrow herb garden, and decided to use our old gum boots to make these really cute gum boot herb gardens. These make great kid made gifts for mother’s day or Christmas too!
What you need:
- An old gumboot
- Potting Mix
- Watering Can – we love this super cute kids watering can!
- Herbs of your choice
What to do
- Cut out 3 or 4 small holes in the bottom of the gum boot (for drainage).
- Use the spade to fill the gum boot with potting mix
- Dig a small hole in the soil
- Plant the herbs
- Water with the watering can
- Leave in the sun and water regularly (follow the directions on the herbs that you buy – each on is slightly different).
We planted basil in our gum boots and I’m pleased to say that we’ve already started using the basil in our cooking!
