Kids love gardening, and growing their own vegetables is especially exciting. Growing Things to Eat has all the information a young gardener needs to get started.
As well as discussing different types of plants – vegetables, fruits and herbs – the book details how and when to plant different varieties. For many plants details are given about cultivation in small areas. Potatoes can be grown in a stack of car tyres, strwaberries in a hanging basket and cress on a plate inside.
As well as practical gardening tips, there are experiments, games and puzzles, jokes and more. Although only 32 pages long, the book is packed full of fun and information.
