The first time a child tries growing from seed, success is a must if they are to develop a love for growing: there is nothing more disheartening for an excited child to find their seeds didn't germinate, or were eaten by pests as soon as they sprouted. We have put together a fine collection of easy-to-grow seeds for kids to encourage little gardeners to develop their love for growing, and to teach them the rewards of having just a little patience.
If you're new to gardening, or you're not sure what happens next, please visit our Gardening for Kids' Guide to Growing from Seed, where we go through how to plant, what to plant and how to look after your seeds long term.
*Please bear in mind that we have reduced our range here to include only those plants that have the best chance of success at this point in the growing season. Please get in touch if you're looking for something in particular that isn't stocked here - we may be able to help*
