Since receiving Esther Coombs Plant, Sow, Make & Grow, I’ve been so excited to get in the garden with my daughter! This is coming from someone who is completely un-green fingered (what is the opposite of green?).
Taking you through the seasons, this book is packed full of ideas for growing yummy fruit, vegetables and bug-friendly flowers, for little (and big!) gardeners. There is plenty of handy gardening tips and information about what wildlife you might spot. Everyone will be able to take something away from this book, no matter your budget. What I really love about this book is that it is full of recycling tips and goes to show how raiding your recycling can help make gardening accessories. I would never have thought of turning a toilet roll into a little plant pot for seeds!
I can’t talk about this book without mentioning how beautiful the book is. Each page is full of Esther Coombs’ detailed illustrations, that are bright and bring the pages to life. The book is PACKED full of activities and ideas, there are 47 pages of it! You can really tell that this book has been a labour of love.
As I said, I am not green fingered but eager to try now! I thoroughly recommend Plant, Sow, Make & Grow to anyone, and really think it’s not just for children but for beginner adult gardeners too!
[Reviewer’s own copy – we love it that much!]
