Gardening for Children

Post by Fminhas » September 7th, 2017, 9:28 am

Salam Alaikom All

I have recently moved to Islamabad from abroad for a few years. I have a six year old who is has immense interest in gardening which is amazing for her age. She was attending her school gardening club and was also selected by her school to represent them at the annual Taton Flower show in July. Of course it was all basic, explaining visitors about the school gardening which was designed for the show. Of course schools here are not likely to have such out of school activities. I was wondering if someone can guide me to the right place for her to grow her interest positively. Is there someone who could mentor her?

Secondly I am a keen gardener myself. I love orchids and had a huge collection before I came. Where can I buy Orchids in Islamabad? I am sure they will be easy to grow indoors here as well.

Thank you
