Plant A Rainbow Garden Kit

One of the best ways to get your kids interested in gardening is to make it fun and a little mysterious. The children who tour our Beanstalk Children’s Garden in Kansas City are always attracted to the most colorful plants growing in the garden.

Children also love discovering the different veggie colors when they dig them up, like the purple, pink and white radishes in our ‘Easter Egg’ Radish seeds or the yellow, white and purple carrots in our ‘Rainbow Blend’ Carrot seeds.

We’ve put together a Plant A Rainbow Garden Kit that combines fun with mystery and makes your children’s garden a colorful patch of veggies and flowers.
