Prose: non-fiction, Gardening

Following the enormous success of Grow Your Own Veg, here is the first bespoke 'grow your own' book for younger gardeners - and it also shows how you can eat what you sow! The authority, best practice and most reliable advice of The Royal Horticultural Society combined with the writing skills of a renowned garden writer and the only gardening expert on children's television in Britain. Step-by-s

Renowned garden writer Lia Leendertz (Guardian and many books) and children's television gardener Chris Collins (BBC's 'Blue Peter'), show junior greenfingers everything they need to know to get the gardening bug. RHS Grow Your Own for Kids embodies the 'Grow Your Own' ethos of food provenance, self-sufficiency, and healthy eating. It shows how to sow and grow up to 12 key vegetables including tomatoes, aubergines, peas, potatoes, monster pumpkins, mustard & cress, runner beans and courgettes. It also includes child-friendly fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, along with other plants such as sunflowers and edible flowers. Specially commissioned photography featuring children gardening illustrates the projects and introduces young gardeners to the science behind gardening.
