    I usually take a picture of my students and have them create a card for mother's day, but I found pots that come in a pack of 8 at the dollar section of target and couldn't pass them up. The only thing I've ever grown in the classroom was grass. I'd love suggestions on the best seeds to use for my first graders. Thanks!!

    Grass seeds grow pretty fast and are fun to "trim", even better if they draw a face or something on the pot and make the grass like hair, like a chia pet.

    I have had a lot of luck with nasturtium but you have left it too late to get much more than a few leaves on anything except grass or beans.

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!!


    Am I too late? I was hoping this wasn't the case. Since I've bought the pots already, I think I'm going to go ahead and try to plant something.

    You could buy a flat of impatiens already sprouted and blooming...

    I always grew marigolds for Mother's day with my PS. But, we planted them the first day back from spring break. I think you best bet is to buy some plants to transplant.

    I love impatients! They're relatively hardy, too, so moms with no green thumb might have some success. :)
