Historic children's gardens are springing up all over the country, inspired by a program that encouraged schools to grow gardens commemorating Jefferson's 250th birthday. Put together by Monticello's Education Department and the Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants, this kit includes easy-to-grow seeds for plants that have fun colors, fruits or forms. A detailed booklet tells how to plant and care for your garden. Seed varieties include Love-in-the-Mist, Nasturtiums, Johnny-jump-ups, Calendulas, Scarlet Runner Beans, Bachelor's Buttons, Sweet Basil, and Globe Artichokes. Suitable for ages 6 and up, in all growing areas in the United States.
