Children are keener on gardening than ever before, according to a survey conducted by the Royal Horticultural Society. Everyone gets a thrill from seeing tiny seeds develop into fat, green seedlings; there is also the sheer pleasure of being outdoors and allowed to get dirty. However, if first attempts don't work, it is easy to be put off. The answer is "The young gardener", every budding gardener's helping hand. Written with the first-hand experience of Blue Peter's gardener, Clare Bradley, the projects really do work, and the selected plants are easy-to-grow and interesting. Sections include: Reach for the sky (climbers); Plants from pips (fruit); Heavenly scents (perfumed flowers); A pond of your own; Savour the flavour (herbs); Man-eaters? (carnivorous plants). "The young gardener" is a fun, lively and practical book that is clearly laid out with colourful and appealing step-by-step illustrations throughout, and includes everything you need to know to get started. Parents, by invitation, should pick up a few tips too!
