6 Great Books for National Gardening Week

It is National Gardening Week.

I’ve selected six rather special books to encourage you and your little readers to start something beautiful in your own gardens, big or small.

Happy gardening!

A Little Guide to Gardening – a wonderful cute, yet incredibly comprehensive guide to gardening … big or small. Sewing seeds, recipes, looking after your garden. It’s all here alongside Jo Elworty’s beautiful illustrations.

The Butterfly Garden – a stunning picture book charting the life cycle of the butterfly.

The Little Gardener – Emily Hughes’s stunning illustrations and narrative tell the story of a little character who absolutely adores his garden … but it all gets a littl too much.

A First Book of Nature – Nicola Davies love and enthusiasm for nature leaps out of every page of this wonderfully thick tome filled to the brim with all sorts of inspiration.

The Curious Garden - Peter BrownThat’s Not A Daffodil! – an all time favourite picture book. This little character is quite convinced that this object, which looks strangely like an onion, can’t possibly be a daffodil …!

The Curious Garden – a classic from Peter Brown, depicting the power of a garden to transform a dull and grey city.
