Growing plants and making things for the garden is endless fun. What's more the garden never stops changing, so each day brings new surprises the first green shoot, a crocus in bloom, a sighting of tadpoles or a sweet, ripe strawberry to enjoy. And even if it's raining there are still loads of green-fingered projects to do inside.

This book is bursting with planting and gardening ideas to suit children from the ages of 5 to 12. A short introduction arms the reader with all they need to know about plants, soil and essential tools. Then there are over 60 easy-to-follow step-by-step projects. These include ideas for doing things indoors, growing fruit, vegetables and flowers, making crafty bits and pieces for the garden and finding ways of getting wildlife to come and visit.

The fantastic ideas include making a grass head man whose hair can be cut as it grows, cultivating flowers that you can eat such as nasturtiums, combining flowers that smell of chocolate in a pot, making a mobile that dances in the breeze, or creating sweet nectar stores for butterflies. Clear instructions and more than 175 stunning photographs make following the projects easy, while expert tips and growing ideas give you lots of options. Invaluable 'you will need' lists, growing times and a star rating guide provide at-a-glance information to help you choose a suitable project.

Whether the sun is shining or the clouds are grey, here are masses of ways to keep you occupied in and out of the garden. With expert advice, clear instructions and over 60 great ideas, this provides fun activities for all children, from tiddlers to safari explorers.
