Buy Children's grow bucket tomato gift set: A simple way to introduce your children to gardening

  • Position: bright light
  • Soil: compost supplied
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Hardiness: frost tender (will need winter protection)
  • Dimensions: 14cm x 12cm

    This kit is a great way to introduce children to the joys (and rewards) of gardening. It comes complete with a brightly coloured zinc bucket (or planter), a packet of tomato seeds, sufficient peat-free compost (in the form of a dehydrated pellet), and easy to follow instructions.

  • Growing instructions: Place the peat-free compost pellet in a suitable container and add 350ml of lukewarm water. Allow to stand and expand for 30-60 minutes, drain off any excess water and mix compost well. You may have more compost than you require - or more water may be required if the compost mix is looking dry. Fill 90% of the planter with compost, place the seeds evenly over the surface and cover with a thin layer of compost and gently water. Place the planter indoors in a bright position and water regularly - never allowing the compost to completely dry out. After the seeds have sprouted, remove excess seedlings, leaving just the three strongest ones to grow, and after all risk of frost has passed, place the planter outside in a sunny position.
