What better way to get children interested in gardening than with a fun-filled, attractively laid-out book on the subject? Full of zany ideas clearly illustrated and explained in child-friendly language, this is sure to sow some horticultural seeds to mature in later life as an enjoyable hobby. Dinosaur worlds, desert landscapes, painted pots, herb sachets and garden mobiles intermingle with the more serious subjects such as vegetable growing. All presented in a wacky child-appealing format, this is sure to appeal even if gardening doesn't. So encourage them outside and let them discover for themselves the wonders of nature with these imaginative projects. - Lucy Watson
