This is a great project to start at the beginning of the summer and follow all the way through August. Have your kids planting seedlings on your property and, week after week, watch them grow.
Don’t plant the entire ice cream cone - cut off the bottom quarter. The seedlings won’t be able to grow past the cone in the soil before the cone is completely gone. It’s as simple as that!
Water regularly, give the baby plants enough sun, and even add nutrients like fertilizer or your preferred garden vitamins to these ice cream cone seed starters.
