Continuing with our successful titles in the Tui family this practical, highly illustrated guide has been written specifically for the young gardener. It contains all the essential information you need to start a garden plus information on the most popular plants young gardeners might like to cultivate. There are also sections on protecting your plants, how to design a garden, what tools are needed as well as combating pests and diseases. Recipes using your produce are also included as well as crafts, trivia and key tips. A handy page at the back also allows you to take notes about your own garden.
