New to Little Gardeners (Johnsons’ range for children) this season, are two flower and two vegetable starter kits – Cheery Nasturtiums, Gigantic Sunflowers, Halloween Pumpkins and Sweet Strawberries.
With everything needed to start seeds growing, each kit contains a propagator tray and lid, compost and seeds along with easy to follow instructions. Each variety has been specially selected to be started off in the tray and then transplanted to grow on once the seedlings are large enough. With an RRP of £4.00, the four varieties are available as a shelf ready tray of six kits and also on the stand as part of the Little Gardeners collection. Helen Clayton, Johnsons Brand Manager says “We know how much children love to get their hands dirty helping out in the garden. We hope these new easy to use starter kits will encourage them to do just that.”
Each product in the Little Gardeners range has something for children to grow, with extra activities for them to enjoy. The Mini Greenhouse (RRP £12.00) comes ready to assemble and can be used to get seeds growing, as a fun, reusable propagator. Everything is included to get started including seeds, a large compost disc and a widger and dibber.
Growing cress is easy with the Little Gardens Cress Garden kit – the box turns into a garden scene for children to grow cress indoors in as little as seven days. Including a 100% recycled growing mat, seeds and a sheet of Little Gardeners characters to cut out and stick around the cress garden. Available as a compact unit of eight kits with an RRP of £4.00, it’s a perfect product for impulse sales.
Creating a small flower bed doesn’t get any easier than with the three Little Gardeners flower mixes (RRP £3.00) – choose from pink, blue or a wildlife attracting mix, then simply dig over the soil, shake out the seed, rake in, water and watch pretty flowers grow.
The Mini Sunflowers and Yummy Strawberries grow kits are 2 litre pots supplied with seed and compost along with stickers, fun facts and activities. The plants can be grown from seed to maturity in the same pot, making it a simple way to grow bright sunflowers and delicious strawberries without having to transplant them from the pot. These complete kits have an RRP of £4.50.
