Children's Garden book to be published by Horticulture Week writer

The Children's Garden Loads of Things to Make and Grow is to be published by Frances Lincoln on 3 March 2016.

Through 52 exciting family projects, The Children’s Garden inspires parents and their children to play and learn in the garden, with activities including nature trails, cooking, crafting and growing plants and vegetables.

A garden can be a place for discovery, creativity and fun, and a space that encourages children to enjoy and engage with the natural world.

In this book, projects and activities are divided by the seasons, so you’ll never be stuck for green-fingered inspiration again.

Ex-primary teacher and Horticulture Week writer Matthew Appleby (author of best-selling The Allotment Planner, 2013) is the expert voice behind the book.

Appleby has two sons and has tapped into his first-hand experience of parenting and teaching to devise these seasonal projects for every week of the year.

The Children's Garden is the perfect companion for families looking to discover the magic and adventure their gardens have to offer.

Projects include: Plant a scented handbag, All-you-can-eat basket, Home-made seed bombs, Turf tattoos, Keeping chickens, Sand play and art, Snacks for super heroes, Foraging fun, In search of forest finds and ugly veg.
