Children's Gardens (Paperback)
Twelve Theme Gardens for Families
Children love flowers, plants, and the outdoors. Developing an appreciation of nature can begin at an early age and there is no better way to combine learning about the natural world, conservation, and responsibility than a garden designed for children to enjoy and help maintain. Serving as both a source for actual plans that can be used and as a way to stimulate other ideas, Children's Gardens: Twelve Theme Gardens for Families is a compact and charming introduction to what may become a life long hobby and pleasure - or even a future vocation. The author is aware that parents may only have a small area to devote to a garden and perhaps feel that they do not have enough room to creat a childs garden. Here, complete with detailed plans, are ideas for creating lasting and rewarding gardens, including those that require minimal space - even two designed for a window box. Ranging from the "circus garden" to the "little farm", and varying in complexity, the plans are easy to follow and generally require common building materials to construct, with a chils participation encouraged.
