In Grow Your Own For Kids
Chris Collins shows how to sow and grow 10 easy vegetables that kids love to eat. Simple step-by-step sequences will guide and inspire them; presenting fun challenges such as growing the tallest sunflower and the largest pumpkin. A "letter to the grown ups" will explain how parents and guardians can provide a garden for their kids, whether this is a container, a window box or a small plot outside. A shopping list, general advice and words of wisdom and encouragement will ensure that nothing goes wrong for those budding green fingers.
A great add-on to the book is the Sow-your-own-Salad page with lettuce-seed impregnated paper. This cut-out page will come to life when placed in a seed pot with compost and water. The miracle of growing your own, springing from the pages of their first gardening book!
