10 Best plants to grow with Kids

For most of us at Yates we've been gardening with our kids since they were 2 years old. From our experience the more hands on they are in the garden and picking their own plants or seed packets to grow from, reaps the best rewards. However, in saying this not all plants are as easy to grow and it doesn’t hurt to try to send them in the right direction. 

How to grow Sunflowers

How much we loved to watch something that starts at the size of a finger nail grow into something as tall as a giant and as bright as the sun.

Sunflowers are an easy fun flower to grow, especially for kids. They can grow huge with the tallest sunflower on record achieving over 8 metres. They can vary in colour, not only are they yellow they can be orange and even red.
