The gift that keeps on giving – a simple yet effective way to share growing with others this Christmas season is through the gift of seeds. Made even more perfect if you have saved seed from your own garden. If not www.greenharvest.com.au has a great variety of organic seeds. Seeds promote new life, hope and beauty as they grow into a plant that can later be enjoyed as a healthy nutritious food – it may just ignite an inspiration for further gardening. Involve children to creatively decorate and personalise a terracotta pot - hand paint and lacquer your unique design for the person receiving the gift to plant their seeds.
