Garden Inspiration - Miracle-Gro’s The Gro Project

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Well, after to unexpected April Blizzards here in Nebraska, I think Spring has finally sprung.  And I have gardening fever.  But in my area of the country I still have to wait awhile for digging in to our soil outside.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t start other simple and fun garden projects.  Especially the ones that get my three boys involved.

I found out about Miracle-Gro’s The Gro Project a few days ago and came across the most amazing and simple project.  I am going to do with my boys next weekend.  It is called Toyrarium. 

Thank you Mircle-Gro for the use of your Toyrarium photo from your great Facebook The Gro Project page.

I will share personal photos next week of our creative adventure.

All you need is a fish bowl or other glass container, some cactus or other succulents, Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix, Rocks, a spoon and some extra plastic toys or figures for your children’s room.  Okay, doesn’t like sound like fun?  We are going to have a blast.  I can’t wait to see how our Toyrarium will turn out. 

 

So all you need to do is:

1) Get a fish fish bowl or other glass container (I love to repurpose!)

2) Add some Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix in the bottle of the bowl or container.

3) Then plant your cactus or other plants by using a spoon.

4)  Last have you children personalize the project with some of their small toys.

I better make sure to buy some indoor Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food to supplement our so to be fun indoor cactus garden.  Or maybe I should check out the LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit?  I will have to read up about the differences and see what will be the best.

If you are a Pinterest nut like I am, you have to check out the Miracle-Gro Pinterest page.  It is a wonderful way to share your gardening experiences…inside and out.  Plus, it can lead to inspirations from others to get your gardening skills up to snuff and enjoy other gardening stories.
