Plant a pumpkin seed 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 and Hollyhock Days, 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.
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.
