Spring is less than a week away, and what better time to teach the kids to garden than right as flowers are popping up all around them? You may think tending to a full garden may be too much responsibility for your youngsters, which is why it might be smart to start prepping their green thumbs by purchasing plant flowers.

Teaching the kids about plant care with decorative house plants may spark their interest and help them understand how greenery grows. An option like Teleflora's Peaceful Zen Garden may be a good first plant as this gorgeous collection of river rocks and succulents are easy to take care of but still boast tons of charm. Those looking to teach their kids even more about gardening might be more interested in affordable flowers like the Stylish Plant Assortment from Teleflora. This bountiful collection of plants such as kalanchoes, ivy and crotons come in a dark vase and require both sunlight and plenty of water. Kalanchoes require specific care including pinching off blooms once they pass their prime. They also do better in warmer climates and start to soften and get damaged if left in cold temperatures under 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
