What a wonderful way to introduce young children to the joys of gardening. These Wellies (better known as boots in the USA) make delightful containers that youngsters can fill with their favorite bulbs and transport to a special spot all their own.
I dug these out from the back of the shed, found a few leftover bulbs from the pre-school gardening club and asked the kids if they wanted to plant up some boots.
I cut extra slits at the bottom and the children added gravel to the base for drainage.
Then it was simply a case of filling up with compost and planting the tulip, daffodil and crocus bulbs at the correct depths.
