Getting children interested in growing plants is a great way to teach them about nature and science. They will be able to see the growing process of a plant when it emerges from the seed and closely follow the different stages of a plants development. As plants are living things, it also helps them develop a nurturing side.
We all love receiving flowers (note to men out there; especially us ladies!) and if you think about it, we all get a buzz out of giving flowers too, so really it’s a good choice when you want to put a smile on someone’s face. Birthdays, celebrations, valentine, new home, as an apology, when someone is ill, sad or ‘just because’, this lovely tradition of giving flowers is as popular today as it ever has been.
