Creating a children’s growing garden
I need a plan for creating raised gardens two 4x8' 8 inches high. Some plants that are appealing are: lavender, parsley, dill tomatoes, peas, basil, oregano, chives, beans, lettuce, carrots, potatoes, cucumber, eggplant, pansies, nasturtium, marigolds, sunflowers, and morning glories. I need an estimated cost to purchase these plants. Can you help me or suggest where I might get answers? Thank you, Sharon

What a wonderful project a children's garden is!
The cost of plants will vary on plants, depending on the varieties, availability and the area that you live.
Plants and seeds can generally be found at local garden centers, farmer's markets, home improvement centers, big box stores or even mail order.
The costs can be very little for a packet of seeds and most vegetable and herb plants are available for a few dollars each.
I'm listing several articles to help you get started planning your garden.
Each of the plants you listed can be researched directly from our web site. Use the search bar at the top of the home page.
