The Lovereading4Kids comment

Perfect for budding green-fingered kids or indeed to get kids enthused in discovering how plants grow - and where food comes from - by growing their own fruit and vegetables. This is the perfect introduction for absolutely beginners, covering all the basics plus lots of hints, tips and ideas. No garden is required as there are lots of ways to grow plants in pots, jam jars, plastic containers inside, on windowsills or balconies.

Synopsis

Gardening for Beginners by Abigail Wheatley, Emily Bone

Gardening - and particuarly growing your own food - has seen a real revival in recent years, with waiting lists for allotments soaring. This is a great way to get the whole family involved, however little space you have.

Includes detailed instructions on how to grow herbs, salad leaves, tomoatoes, potatoes, succulents, bulbs, beans, pumpkins, sunflowers and lots more - and even how to create your own pond!

Also a great introduction to the basic principles of biology, as set out in the National Curriculum.

'Perfect for budding green-fingered kids or indeed to get kids enthused in discovering how plants grow - and where food comes from - by growing their own fruit and vegetables' - lovereading4kids'

'Another gem in Usborne's brilliant collection of educational yet appealing books for kids. In fact, it is rather handy for adults with no clue too. There are simple, step-by-step instructions to growing flowers or food - and you don't need a garden to use it, either, as there are plenty of ideas for containers or window sills' - The Guardian
