Plant a pumpkinseed with a child, and cultivate wonder. This simple act of reconnecting with children with nature is Sharon Lovejoy's purpose and joy and gift. Author of Sunflower Houses: Garden Discoveries for Children of All Ages and Hollyhock Days: Garden Adventures for the Young at Heart, Sharon Lovejoy is a nationally known garden writer whose books, television specials, and projects at her learning landscape in California have introduced thousands of children to the pleasures of gardening.

In her newest book, Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots, she presents 12 spirited, easy-to-implement ideas for theme gardens that parents and kids can grow together. Illustrated throughout by the author's own lyrical watercolors, each garden includes a plan, the planting recipe -- seeds, seedlings, and growing instructions spelled out step-by-step -- and activities. There's the Pizza Patch , a giant-size wheel garden planted in "slices" of tomatoes, zucchini, oregano, and basil. A Flowery Maze to get lost in. A Moon Garden of night-blooming flowers, including a moonflower tent. And Mother Nature's Medicine Chest.

Discovery Walks teach kids how the gardens work, and a chapter on gardening basics includes a child-friendly 10-Minute Plan for planting and maintenance, plus a list of the top 20 plants guaranteed to make gardeners out of kids.

    Purchased this edition as gift to grandchildren to help further develop their love for eating vegetables and herbs grown by them in their backyard. Very cute ideas on making this garden pleasing to the eye, and helping them and MOM decide which plants are more durable for beginner gardeners.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very well.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Informative.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Rec'd in excellent condition. Hardcover as new.
  • Not your ordinary gardening book

    Fun to read, beautifully illustrated activity book for kids and adults alilke! Full of interesting, easy-to-implement garden designs as well as craft ideas, poetry, and trivia. Highly recommend if you are planning to garden with children, though I am looking forward to using some of the ideas myself!
