Gardening Task!

  • If you can, plant your own seeds or plants in your house or garden. If you are unable to, can you get outdoors and choose a plant to observe over the next few days/weeks? Observe your seeds/plants over the next few days/weeks. Keep a growth journal, take measurements, make notes, photos or sketches of any changes.
  •  Challenge: plan your own garden or flower bed ( try to explain your choices of plants and location).
