Growing Stuff: An Alternative Guide to Gardening Cover

 

Staff Pick

As both an avid gardener and a sucker for a cute cover, I was eager to get my hands on a copy of Growing Stuff, Black Dog Publishing's first foray into the world of gardening guides.  As practical as it is pretty, Growing Stuff juxtaposes easy-to-follow instructions with vibrant photographs and charming illustrations.  But what really sets it apart is the variety of projects featured, which range from traditional (tomatoes, radishes, and windowsill mint) to anything but (suitcase gardens, seed bombs, and carrots grown in Wellington boots)!
