Please keep in mind a few safety rules when gardening with herbs and children:
• Always be sure that you correctly identify your plants and that they are safe for eating.
• Be sure that any plants you eat have not been exposed to harmful chemicals, and make sure that they're washed thoroughly before use.
• Teach your children never to put any plant from the garden in their mouth without asking for permission from an adult first.
