Plant your own herbs and vegetables and create your own mini sustainable garden to celebrate World Environment Day.

  • Step 1Fill a terracotta hanging pot with soil. Collect plant offcuts from the garden and arrange them in your pot. Alternatively plant seeds and water them in. Make sure you keep your pot in a safe and sunny place.
  • For seedlings to thrive during germination they need at least 8 hours of sunlight a day. Always keep them moist but try not to over water them. They also need to be protected from wind and frost. Water them regularly with a recognised fertiliser following instructions for use on seedlings.
  • Step 3You might like to fill a bell cup with soil and plant a seed in it to create a miniature plant pot for your scene.
  • Step 4Create your own mini mushrooms to put in your garden. Take a look at our Mini Mushroom Scene for more information.
  • Step 5Cut a piece of coloured card and white card to create a sign for your garden. Glue your white card to the front of your coloured card. Allow to dry.
  • Step 6Write a message on your sign. Using a bamboo stick as the pole, tape your sign to the front of your bamboo stick. Place your sign into your pot.
