Hello! Welcome to Robinson Love Plants!
My name is Amelia Robinson. I am a lover of plants and gardens, as well as an educator on those topics. It’s my goal to make sure that you get the chance to learn what you need to about gardening to succeed with your own home garden. That’s where this blog comes in. You’re not going to find just a collection of basic articles about gardening here. Instead, I want to answer the difficult questions for you.
You know those questions that a lot of people have but no one seems to answer in plain English? I want to give you the answers, plain and simple. If you ever have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or get in contact with me and I will see what I can do!
When I’m not writing, I am enjoying the company of my husband, Danny, and our son, Ash. Yes, Ash like the tree! It’s always been one of my favorite trees, and we even planted one in the yard on our son’s 1st birthday.
I have studied horticulture all of my life and have been keeping my own gardens every year since I was 5 years old. I believe it’s important for us to know what’s going into our bodies and to put some effort into growing it ourselves. It’s easier than you think to have a garden, and I want to teach you how to do it for yourself!
There are a lot of similarities between taking care of your trees and plants and caring for your children. Nature needs our love and attention to thrive, or else it will also suffer. If we don’t care for the world around us, we can’t expect it to stay beautiful and healthy.
Because of this, I also believe very strongly in teaching children about gardening and growing. It’s important for them to learn what it takes to maintain a healthy world. Children learn all sorts of valuable things through gardening, such as science and nutrition, and they also learn the importance of knowing what you’re putting into your body. Safe, healthy, natural foods are important for a child’s development. Your son or daughter will be much more likely their vegetables if they helped to grow them!
The first time that Danny and I let Ash help in the garden was a complete and total success. He was only 3 years old, but he managed to help was do some of the planting, weeding, and watering when he wasn’t chasing bugs or trying to catch worms. Once the vegetables were ready to harvest, Ash couldn’t WAIT to try them! Before, you would have thought that it was World War III whenever we tried to give him green vegetables.
This little story just shows how much of an impact a garden can have on your child’s life. They will learn to be more responsible and will be excited about taking care of the world, instead of just taking it for granted. This is what I want for the future.
