Egg Herb Garden


This is a fun way to grow a small herb garden, which would make a sweet gift from a child to a cook in their family.

The infographic below shows you all the steps you need to know, the main thing is to take the top off carefully so you may want to help children with this or take the top off before they get started.

Large plants will obviously need transplanting - this one features a tomato which would need potting on. But chives, basil, thyme, parsley, and dill would grow in small clumps nicely in these eggs and by the time they are getting too big you'd want to cut and eat them anyway. You could also have a dinky rosemary plant or a small mint plant that has been propagated on from a bigger plant (or from seed).

The idea seems to have originally come from a Japanese language site called DearYuki.

Have a try!

Easter Bunny Breakfast with Scrambled Egg and Bacon Loving this creative Easter breakfast. I know it's fab to get up and do the Easter egg hunt, but you need to get some 'proper food' into kids before they really pile in to the pile of chocolate. This is a great breakfast idea which will fill them up and make them smile and enable you to get them to postpone the chocolate carnage for a little longer. The recipe was created by Carrie over at worthpinning.com and was inspired by some ...

Easter Chick Boiled Eggs This is a lovely idea originally from the Manga Cookbook, but we saw in on JustJENN's recipe site, where she tried it out with her own children. It's a lovely way to present a boiled egg as an Easter treat. Kids eat so much sweet food over Easter, you need to make sure they are getting a little protein in to stop their blood sugar constantly rocketing up and down. So if you're having an Easter themed meal, you could put some of these in the mix. If you'...

WildlifeKate's Video Site WildlifeKate is a blogger from Staffordshire who has set up a BRILLIANT site full of webcams of garden wildlife. Kate is, it's fair to say, a bit obsessed with encouraging wildlife into her garden. Lucky for us, she's also a bit obsessed with filming it, so she has set up loads of live streaming cameras for us to see. If you want to show children how amazing "ordinary" garden wildlife can be, and especially on days when the wea...
