Planting your Garden
1. Head to your local garden centre and purchase your seeds and a small bag of organic seed raising mix.

2. You can plant directly into your garden or if the temperature is still a little cold, start your seeds inside in little pots - choose a nice sunny spot like a window sill (you can carefully transplant into garden later). Spritz your seedlings with water so as not to dry out. 

3. Visit often and watch as they grow and bloom into beautiful flowers, for you and the Bees to enjoy!
