Rain rain go away…. or if you’d rather you can stay

ALL this rain in July could be dampening spirits in the BecoOffice- but Bell the Bumble Bee and her friends are keeping the summer alive with thoughts of the garden growing!

Having fun growing in your garden with the wee ones is a great way to get them thinking about the environment and where things come from. As well as having lots of fun planting; your little ones will be thrilled when things start to grow.

A few ideas of what to plant with your tots in July…

Broad Beans, Dwarf Beans, Mung Beans, Beetroot, Spring Cabbage, Carrots (for continuation), Next years Cauliflowers, Chicory, Coriander (Cilantro), Endive, Kohl Rabi, Lettuce for continuation and winter lettuce, Pak Choi, Peas, Radicchio, Radish, Turnips.

Beans and peas are particularly good for growing with the little ones as they tend to be familiar with them and might even like them!

A few flowers for sowing in July if you have flower fairies in your family…

Camomile, Clematis, Daisy, Forget-me-not, Perennial Pansy, Polyanthus, Primrose.

So we’ll be putting our watering devices to the side and making the most of the rain. Molly the dog doesn’t seem too happy about it though- she loves running under the sprinkler!

If you love getting out in the garden with your kids you’ll love our potty planting idea…

After your BecoBaby has graduated from potty training and no longer needs their BecoPotty, plant it in the garden! Let your little one sow some seeds over it and watch the flowers grow while your potty enters its next life phase. (When in the soil the clever waste plant material that our BecoPotties (and all of our other products) are made from will gradually decompose into compost!)
