Description:

This book provides expert answers to the questions every gardener wants to ask – and a few they’ve never dreamed of, from ‘Why do flowers close at night?’ to ‘How do you attract butterflies?’ It’s a great, accessible educational resource for young and old – the essential companion for the curious gardener.

 

Ever wondered how worms breathe? Or why exactly trees are so big? This book covers all aspects of gardens and gardening, and will satisfy all your horticultural curiosity. Packed with photographs, vintage engravings and diagrams, this book will answer everything from the practical to the quirky and whimsical. Feature boxes provide practical guidance, so that you can apply your new-found knowledge to your own garden.

 

Written by the head of the Royal Horticultural Society Members’ Advisory Service, and updated to suit Australian and New Zealand readers, this book is the ideal gift for fact-loving gardeners with curious minds.

 

 

My View:

This is a fun fact filled read- suitable for the gardener, the school room, the nature lover or for anyone who has children who have asked:

 

  • Why do flowers close at night?
  • Does a severed worm grow into two worms?
  • What is the difference between a fruit and a vegetable?
  • Why is compost hot?
  • When is a plant a weed?

 

And so much more knowledge crammed into this easy read book.

 

I hate to be the first one to mention this (and most likely I am not) but that major gift giving time of the year is fast approaching: Christmas. This is an ideal book to add to your gift buying list, there is something in these pages for everyone.
