Growing Strawberries!

Today the girls and I planted some strawberries!

Last year I attempt some gardening in our old house and I won’t lie it was a sorry situation, everything seemed to die within a week or so – probably had something to do with me forgetting to water the poor things!

Any who new year, new garden and all that I’m determined this year to keep something alive, are garden is a lot smaller than the last one but I would quite like to pop a few pot plants out and maybe a hanging basket if I’m feeling adventurous enough.

I found this strawberry growing kit in ASDA and thought it looked pretty fool proof! I also love the red pot!

    These pictures are so cute, what a great idea. I am definitely going to have to source out one of those, we don’t have a proper garden but there may be somewhere near the front of the house we could do this. Thanks for linking up #justus2

    I remember the first time we did this and Lily wanted the veg to grow then, she kept going back outside every half an hour wanting to know why it hadn’t grown yet! Lovely iccies.

    Your gardening sounds like mine, I hope you have better success than me. We have wild strawberries here that always do better than anything I plant. Love the look of anticipation on your girls so I hope they get some strawberries! Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.

    We did this last year! We got the seeds to have leaves. I have to admit that I dont even water it in the last months so I am surprise to see it still alive outside in its pot. I think I need to give it a bit of TLC.

    Gardening is a lovely activity for kids and looks they yours are having so much fun doing it =) #countrykids

    We tried strawberries last year and failed. I’d like to have another go again this year. Good luck with yours. Lovely pics 🙂 #MagicMoments
