Adventurous Plants for Adventurous Growers
For experienced gardeners, children's seed varieties can sometimes seem repetitive and unadventurous. But we can help! There are endless extaordinary plants that are both easy to grow and fascinating to watch, and we've chosen 3 of our favourites.
For the ultra-adventurous, check out our 'Grow Something Different' collection, featuring fascinating plants from around the world.
Check out our top 3 amazing plants:
1. Caterpillar Plant
Scorpiurus muricatus produces small, yellow flowers followed by strange, curled hairy seedpods which look just like hairy caterpillars! Grow them now!
Cucamelons originate from Mexico where they are known as 'little mouse watermelons' and have a taste which is like cucumber and lime! Grow them now!
3. Dancing Plants (Mimosa)
Grow a plant that moves! Mimosa pudica is known as the 'sensitive plant'; the slightest touch will temporarily make the leaves fold up and stems collapse! At night too, the leaves and stems droop and make the plant look like it's gone to sleep. Grow them now!
