Winner of the 2010 Garden Media Guild Award for Practical Book of the Year! This exciting new book contains more than 150 projects for every child from 5 to 12. An introduction covers all the basics, and eight hands-on project chapters then follow, covering everyday techniques, edible treats, flower power, craft projects, wildlife gardening and indoor gardening. Clear instructions and more than 900 stunning colour photographs make following the projects easy, while expert tips and growing ideas provide inspiration and encourage experimentation. Invaluable 'you will need' lists, growing times and a star rating guide provide at-a-glance information to help you choose a suitable project, whether you want a small-scale indoor project for a rainy day or to get stuck in and grow you own flower rainbow, mini wildlife pond or a living wigloo.
