Hurry up and eat your salad, before it eats you!

Be sure to label your plant pots with some very clear danger warnings.
You don’t want your family & friends to get eaten by what you grow… do you?

WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS WORKSHOP

Invent and grow some man-eating plants! Paint a terracotta pot with your own theme, to grow your dangerous plants in. You can also design your own seed packets to keep the dangerous seeds safe in, designed with danger warnings and special instructions.

WHAT’S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE?
Ours is finding a tarantula in our salad. What if we told you there’s a poisonous nocturnal plant called the Tarantula Tickler, that scuttles about after dark, and grows to twice its size if you try to squash it? What does your worst nightmare carnivorous plant like to eat? What are your instructions for looking after it, watering it, and stopping it from eating your Nan?OR HOW ABOUT growing something a little safer? Choose mini carrots, salad leaves or cress to eat at home. A plant pot brightly coloured with stripes or spots makes a great present for family – Nan would love some quick growing salad on her window sill. Safer than a Nan-eating plant! If it’s the right time of year, you can also grow pumpkins or sunflowers to plant out in your garden (before they become monsters!)DID YOU KNOW?
Gardening is the new rock n roll! Check out the ROYAL HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY for young horticulturalists.
