People all around the world enjoy the hobby of gardening. They love planting tiny seeds in the soil and watching them sprout into mature plants. Gardening isn't just for adults, however. Kids can plan, create, and maintain their own gardens, too. Gardening for Kids is rich with ideas and instructions for making water gardens, flower gardens, vegetable gardens, perennial gardens, butterfly gardens, and landscape designs. Riding bikes, hiking, and playing sports aren't the only things you can do in the great outdoors. If you'd like a relaxing, rewarding way to spend time outside, you could start your very own flower garden. Follow these step-by-step instructions for preparing your garden plot and choosing flowers for shady and sunny locations, plus maintaining your garden by weeding, watering, and deadheading. Discover the difference between annuals and perennials, and find out what to plant to attract colorful birds and butterflies. Decorate your own gardening gloves and belt for carrying the tools you'll need to maintain a garden once it starts to grow. Whether you're planting in a big backyard or in containers that you can keep indoors, you can reap the rewards of successful flower gardening. Book jacket.
