This month we're getting Back to nature with the Center Parcs April Challenge at Tots100 and the theme is 'Lets get growing!' Now that spring has finally arrived we've been making plans for our garden and started with planting a butterfly garden. We planted mixed flowers, lavender and thyme seeds from a butterfly garden pack.
We put compost discs in three pots,
then moistened them with water and watched the soil expand.
When the soil was ready we planted the seeds in each pot,
and labelled and decorated lolly stick plant markers.
Four days later and the mixed flowers and thyme have started to germinate (the lavender will take longer) and soon we'll re-pot the plants into larger containers and grow them outdoors.
