Overview

Families looking to enrich their green thumbs while beautifying their homes will enjoy this comprehensive guide to indoor and outdoor gardening using nontoxic flowers, vegetables, trees, and houseplants. Sorted by type—plants from seed, bulbs, annuals, perennials, fruiting trees, and sensory plants—each plant is thoroughly explained and easy to identify using color photographs. Details such as the flora’s preferred habit and why a particular plant is good for kids are included along with suggestions for use in the garden. Seventeen gardening projects illustrate a variety of creative and fun ways for children and parents to plant together, including butterfly gardens, herb pots, hanging baskets, rock gardens, and cutting gardens.
