5.0 out of 5 stars The best book ever written (in the world), 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Playground Potting Shed: Gardening with children made simple (Paperback)
I'd just landed a great job teaching gardening & garden crafts to primary & reception and although I had years of landscaping experience, veg growing was another thing, and I was a bit worried. however this is the bible for anyone setting up a gardening club or similar. It's soooooooooo great, packed with week by week planning, growing tips best varieties, anecdotes of what went well and, importantly what went wrong which made me realise it's ok to fail and all part of learning. Thank you Dominic, I'm sure you've given many people confidence to have a go. I can't thank you enough for taking the time to share your experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book to read if you're going to set up a school gardening club., 20 Jan. 2013

This review is from: The Playground Potting Shed: Gardening with children made simple (Paperback)
I bought three books before setting up a school gardening club. By far this was the most helpful. All in plain English with really constructive help about terms, timings, getting things started, easy things to grow, problems, keeping interest etc etc etc. Can't recommend this highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Advice For School Gardeners!, 12 April 2011
This review is from: The Playground Potting Shed: Gardening with children made simple (Paperback)
The Playground Potting Shed: A Foolproof Guide to Gardening with Children
I'm thoroughly enjoying reading this book - it is so on the ball with the types of problems you encounter when running a school gardening club and the solutions are very welcome. You feel like you really know this author and he clearly is very knowledgeable about the topic. It's really down to earth advice and very comforting!

A great buy and in excellent condition. Thanks
