advice please: mother's day project for scouts
A greenhouse the local university was giving away little 2 1/2 inch clay pots. I was able to get enough for my brownie and junior girl scout troop. I've put them through the dishwasher a couple times, and they've cleaned up nicely. I hope any diseases have been killed too.
I was thinking, what kind of little flowers/herbs would you suggest growing in such small pots? And when would they need to be planted to be blooming by mother's day?
Also, what kind of paints are good for decorating clay pots? I was thinking about spray painting them all with spray enamel myself and then letting the girls write on them with paint pens. That seems to be the least messy solution. Any other ideas?
Thanks, sara :)
