Phase 2 Miracle-Gro: The Gro Project’s Garden Education
This summer, the kids and I started a garden. We're so excited to see our veggie garden grow! We planted squash, zucchini, carrots, tomatoes, snap peas, and green beans and Miracle-Gro is here to help. Announcing The Gro Project – showcasing fun garden projects that aren't complicated or hard to do. Miracle Gro wants to simplify gardening for a whole new class of gardeners and show that it's easy and fun to do.
The Gro Project is a growing movement and Miracle-Gro wants us to showcase our creations while helping to educate fellow gardeners. As I was looking through the projects, I saw the Toyarium Project and thought that would be a fun one to do with the kids. The steps are easy and the list isn't very long for what you need to get started.
Here is what you need:
– Fishbowl or other glass container
– Your favorite succulents and cactus
– Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix
– Plastic toys or figurines from your kid's room
Step 1: Cover the bottom of the fishbowl or container with a layer of rocks.
Step 2: Fill it about 1/3 full with potting mix.
Step 3: Use the spoon to plant succulents in the potting mix, adding more mix to create your landscape.
Step 4: Set the scene with your toys. Careful not to overwater. Use a spritzer to moisten only when it gets very dry in there.
Step 5: Add a little imagination and watch it come to life.
