This book is designed to be dipped in to. Say I will not be surprised if in a year or so time it will not appear again on my reading list.

Now basically it has taken a number of questions about the natural world and more specifically the plants and gardens we so recognise. Not surprising considering its published by the Royal Horticultural Society - as I am sure these questions in some form or other have crossed their doors.

So what we have here are a series of questions - now each answer is spr

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 i

Beautifully illustrated and presented, this little book is an absolute delight. Apparently aimed at gardeners, but it would surely fascinate anyone - particularly older children - with an interest in the natural world. It covers worms, of course, and soils, seeds, roots and rot, the colours of leaves and flowers, the life cycles and ways of animals, birds and insects… The sheer wealth of information is far too much to list everything. I have degrees in natural sciences but I found much here that ...more

Ein wirklicher sehr schönes Buch über verschiedene Aspekte des Gartens, im Grunde eine Art Was-ist-Was? für Interessierte aller Altersstufen. Setzt mehr auf einen lockeren oder spannenden Zugang als auf "tiefe" Erklärung.
Geeignet um Durchlesen, habe ich gemacht, und zum Wiederreinblättern, wird sicher noch folgen.

Kleiner Wermutstropfen, der es zu einem 3,5 Sterne-Buch macht: Meine deutsche Übersetzung ist stellenweise nicht gut und schlecht lektoriert. Das fällt gerade bei dieser absichtlich kn

Lot's of helpful information in short bites. Beautiful illustrations. I really like how old fashioned the design of this book feels. A great book to go back to again and again.
