Miracle-Gro: The Gro Project

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Summer is here and Miracle-Gro is trying to help new gardeners find fun garden projects that are both easy and enjoyable.   There you will find creative projects such as Toyarium, Ukulele Garden, Origami Garden, G.Y.O.B. or Thrown Down!  Miracle-Gro also offers online access to an extensive library of videos and articles that are full of gardening tips that are helpful for both beginners and professionals.  Be sure to check it out so that you can help your garden to be the healthiest that it can be.
My family and I enjoy gardening and each  year we try something different.  This year we started growing our seeds in 2 liter bottles that we used to create terrariums.   One sunny afternoon we cut each of the 2 liters in half and then filled them with dirt.  The children got to choose which seeds they wanted to plant and then they poked holes in the dirt, placed in the seeds, covered them up and watered them before replacing the top of the 2 liter.

We anxiously waited for the seeds to turn in to seedlings and then into plants.  Once the chance of frost had passed we transplanted our plants in to our raised garden bed.  Here we used the Miracle-Gro LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit to water and feed our plants.  Now we check them daily to see if any new vegetables have grown.

My family and I enjoy our little garden.  It is a way for us to connect through the whole growing process.  If you are a new gardener and want to grow your own story, then check out The Gro Project and Miracle-Gro on pinterest.  You are sure to find some inspiration there!
