I bet you can’t read the title of this blog without singing it? We were very kindly gifted a My Fairy Kitchen Garden and I honestly thought Mila’s head was going to explode from excitement when it arrived.
The set includes the following;
- Instruction Booklet
- Windowsill Planter
- Fairy House
- Picket Fence
- Pea Shoot Seeds
- Fairy Fenn
You just need to get compost which you can grab from a garden centre or the supermarket. We got ours from our local Co-op, the smallest size they did though was 20 litres. Daryl’s face was a picture when I came in carrying it and had seen the size of the windowsill planter.
Mila and I unboxed the pieces, I say unboxed loosely as it was more Mila ripping the box open. She couldn’t get in there quick enough. I put it all together which was pretty easy, the fence clicked in around the planter and the roof just sits on top of the fairy house. I poured in the compost and Mila sprinkled the seeds on top and helped push them in under the compost. Once finished we put it on the Kitchen windowsill as that gets the best light and is also out the way of little fingers. As Lola is older, it was her job to water the plants each morning before school and Mila was fascinated seeing the progress each day. I had thought that it would take a while for them to grow but they sprouted pretty quickly.
We’ve had so much fun watching these grow and I’ve had the advert song stuck in my head on a loop as Mila insists on singing it everytime she sees the fairy in the Kitchen.
The My Fairy Kitchen Garden retails at £11.99 and it’s worth every penny, especially if you’ve not got a garden like us. It’s also a good learning tool in teaching kids how to look after things. But, the best thing about is that you can use it over and over again and if you sign up to their newsletter you can get other varieties of seeds for FREE, you just have to pay p&p. We will definitely be using it again to grow something else (we definitely have enough compost to do so LOL).
