Author(s): Ellen Zachos
It may seem like gardeners belong to a super-secret, esoteric club, made up of members who know all about Latin plant names and mysterious methods familiar only to the serious few. Not true, says Ellen Zachos. She is here to reassure the uninitiated that anyone can have fun in the dirt. As proof she points out the millions who have actually planted something and succeeded in making it grow without a degree in horticulture or vast experience in design and colour theory. Anyone can join the gardening ranks.
Zachos offers more than 40 fun and funky projects for kids, novice gardeners and the young at heart.
