Through out Magic Gardens we have used various plants in various gardens. We have listed those plants here. It is important to note that there are MANY plants that could be used in a Magic Garden. Take into consideration the following:
- Do you have sun or shade?
- Are there shrubs under which the kids could build a Magic Garden?
- Is this plant fragile or is it a pretty tough customer?
- Am I OK with using some artificial plants poked into the ground?
Many of the gardens are built in areas where plants already existed and for the most part the plants are tough customers and OK with little hands (and feet) coming into contact with them. We have always been under the same guideline that Kerby Pucket’s dad was. When confronted by neighbors about the condition of his yard Mr. Pucket responded, “I’m raising kids, not grass.” Nature is meant to be interacted with….respectfully! Most of the plants in our gardens flower, however, they were selected for: durability, size, and sun conditions for each garden location.
