With easy-to-follow instructions on the basics of growing flowers, herbs, vegetables and more, Growing Stuff provides an excellent introduction to the world of horticulture. A wide selection of creative 'recipes' will help you take growing plants to the next level by making use of them with craft and culinary projects.

Written in an engaging and informal way, the book is an ideal introduction to green-fingered activity, and is sure to convert even wary or novice gardeners to this creative and wide-ranging practice. Includes a foreword by Richard Reynolds author of On Guerilla Gardening.

Review quote

'[This book shows that] Gardening is not just about allotments, trips to garden centres on a Sunday afternoon, and Radio 4 playing in the backgroud... it's about having fun -- creating produce; eating it, drinking it -- you won't disagree when you see the recipe for Grow Your Own Mojito' Amelia's Magazine 'The merry band of authors shows how the frustrated can channel their enthusiasm by container growing, harvesting wild plants, guerrilla gardening and even horticultural art installations' The Guardian 'A vibrant and quirky guide for anyone wishing to transform their outdoor space' Organic Home & Garden
