How does your garden grow?: be your own plant expert
Sterling Pub., Sep 1, 1996 - Gardening - 47 pages
Any child can become an expert gardener with the wealth of advice and hints found among these pages. Construct a "botanical laboratory" and let the plants show you, themselves, how they work. Then prepare your own garden, and grow whatever you choose. The first step is to map out where to plot each plant and when each needs to be seeded and harvested. A colorful, fun source for hands-on learning.
