There’s just something so endearing about watching your kids plant seeds, then water and nurture them into adulthood: It proves your little ones aren't just Tasmanian Devils, but growing into responsible individuals who can care for living things (watch out, getting a dog may be next on their list).

From hardy "starter plants" that are hard to kill to pizza gardens, these tips and activities will cultivate their green thumbs in no time.
