I bought this for my 11yr old grand daughter who really got more interested in the garden last year even growing tomatoes from seed ! This is a great little book with good basic info and well illustrated. Getting another one for another grandchild of 8yrs
Colourful , helpful annotated pictures with simple to understand text. Also, readers can find additional information by using the Internet links. I bought this book primarily for the children in our school gardening club to use. There are plenty of ideas to keep us busy throughout the year!
This is an excellent book for the child or novice. Lots of useful ideas for growing things from scratch. Tackles some 'difficult' activities such as propagation in a very easy to understand way. This book will make gardening fun and productive.
