The Nitty-Gritty Gardening Book: Fun Projects for All Seasons

Out of stock
Separated into four seasonal sections of three projects each, this attractive book first introduces young readers to the basics of gardening. The versatile projects include growing potatoes in a sack, planting a strawberry basket, making a compost bin, and growing salad in a recycled plastic container. The striking photographs feature the same beautiful, spacious garden, but many of these projects work with limited space and can be done on balconies or windowsills. Each project has a supply list and step-by-step instructions that contain clarifying diagrams and photographs. Back matter consists of a glossary, list of resource books and Web sites, a “Where to Find Supplies” page, and an index.
