The Children's Garden book to reach international audience

The Children's Garden, by Horticulture Week deputy editor Matthew Appleby, is to be published in German as Kinder Garten Gluck, Von Kresskoppen, Kafersafaris und Monsterplanzen - frohlich-kreative ideen fur jedes wetter under alle jahrezeiten.

The book is published by Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt on 3 March 2016.

In the UK, The Children's Garden, Loads of Things to Make and Do, is published on the same date by Frances Lincoln and is available for pre-order from Amazon. 

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.

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

Ex-primary teacher Matthew Appleby 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.

The book follows Appleby's the best-selling The Allotment Planner, published in 2013, also by Frances Lincoln as publisher.
