Editorial Reviews

'beautifully presented, and the ideas are lovely'


"This fun collection of DIY activities – or gardening 'experiments,' as the author calls them – ranges from building rain barrels and gardening tool boxes to making a desert terrarium or growing a tropical porch container. My kids were immediately drawn to the projects in this book; my daughter has big plans for the fairy garden, and my son wants to make a sprinkler. And we're all fans of the mini pizza garden that helps us grow our own tomatoes, peppers, onions, basil and oregano." - CoolMomPicks.com
