Gardening Terms Explained

If you are a new gardener, there are a lot of terms and phrases to learn. I often forget that people might not have the slightest idea what I’m talking about when I say things like ‘transplant’ and ‘pot on’. So today I thought I would create a post that explains and breaks down all of the most common gardening terms.

I really hope these help you understand gardening language. Gardening can be quite overwhelming when you have so much to remember. Perhaps print this out or save it on your phone? That way, you will always be able to understand the gardening lingo.

Benefits of Gardening with Children & 5 Easy Things for Them to Grow

Ever since I started a kitchen garden, I have desperately tried to keep Evie involved. Now that I am into my second year of really getting into this garden and Evie is that little bit older, I have noticed that she is a lot more invested. Being out in the fresh air is amazing, but did you know that gardening with children actually has a whole bunch of development benefits? Gardening engages all of their senses, children can touch and feel the seeds, dirt, fruit, vegetables and flowers. They can see the vibrant colours and different sizes, hear the sound of the vegetables when they are either pulled from the ground or taken from the plant. They also get to experience all of the different smells that the plants give off.
