A children’s guide to plants and how to grow them.
Grow beauty, grow companionship, grow flavour, grow plants! Discover 15 plants and fungi with heroic powers, then learn how to grow them. Meet their surprising relatives (tomato is a cousin of deadly nightshade!) and unearth their interesting histories (lettuce was the first vegetable to be grown in space!). Then follow step-by-step instructions to grow and care for each one, whether you have a big garden or a sunny windowsill.
Written by horticulturalist Riz Reyes and illustrated by Sara Boccaccini Meadows, this is the perfect introduction to growing plants for families everywhere.
