Looking for greenhouse
Posted by Angie from Ohio on 2002-03-09 14:29:35

I was wondering if anyone could help me find a child's greenhouse, similar to the one I used to have. The top & sides were covered with a single piece of clear, hard plastic and the bottom was green and 'landscaped' and held water like a small pond. It came with several seed packets, 4-5 small yellow pots, some soil pellets, plant identification signs, and these little turtles that sat in the water and held your seeds while they began to sprout. I remember sitting the seeds in the dark until they were mature enough to transplant into the pots. If anyone has any idea what I'm talking about, please contact me with any info you have. Thank you!

    I did a search at www.google.com and tried different ways to word it. I got some hits with "kids greenhouse". Be sure you put quote marks around it. One site is right here at National Gardening for resources at their 'Gardening with Kids store'. Here's the link.

    Another site I found was here for a kids greenhouse kit.

    This site might either have what you're looking for or be able to find it for you. They say if you can't find it to e-mail them.

    Another WONDERFUL site you might want to visit is The Garden Web. They have forums on just about anything you can think of. Look at 'Gardening With Kids', 'Sources' and on the left there's one called 'Education'. Just be sure if you post on more than one forum that you change the title of your post so their computer doesn't think your spamming and shut you out.

    Good luck in your search,
