About Us

We are 4th generation family nursery growers and our love for plants is packaged into every Tikes Garden Box. Growing up on a farm and at our grandfather's nursery business, we had opportunities that many children today never get to experience. It's our mission to share that experience and the love for plants with young gardeners everywhere.  

Kids love dirt, so let's get growing! 

Wonders of Nature

Plant projects are a meaningful and fun learning experience for children. They offer children an opportunity to learn the life  cycle process by which plants are grown, as well as responsibility,  caretaking, independence, and environmental awareness. The Tikes Garden Box is  a great way to spark a child’s interest in the world around them.


Inspiring & celebrating kids

With a Tikes Garden Box, children can learn new skills, have fun, play and develop self-confidence by spending time  tending plants and watching them grow. Most children love digging in the soil, getting dirty, creating things and learning about nature. At Tikes Garden, we want to give them (and you) that opportunity!


Ready to start discovering?

A Tikes Garden Box cultivates a child's curiosity about nature,  plants, and wildlife. Why do the plants need sun? How does the plant “drink” water? Kids have questions and the Tikes Garden Box helps them discover answers. 


Children learn from growing things

People of all ages can enjoy gardening, but children in particular will  have lots of fun and gain special benefits. Gardening is educational and  develops new skills including: 

Responsibility – from caring for plants

Understanding – as they learn about cause and effect (for example, plants die without water, weeds compete with plants)

Self-confidence – from achieving their goals and enjoying the plants they have grown

Love of nature – a chance to learn about the outdoor environment in a safe and pleasant place

Reasoning and discovery – learning about the science of plants, animals, weather, the environment, nutrition and simple construction

Physical activity – doing something fun and productive

Cooperation – including shared play activity and teamwork

Creativity – finding new and exciting ways to grow plants
