Publisher: Wild Nature Press
Author: Stewart McPherson
Page size: 240 x 285 mm
Cover format: Hardcover
Aimed at enthralling readers in the 8–12 year old age range, Spectacular Plants and How to Grow Them showcases the world’s most bizarre, surprising, weird and wonderful plants, and reveals many that can be easily grown at home!
Spectacular Plants and How to Grow Them explores plants that truly defy belief: from deadly insect-eating sundews, to sensitive plants with leaves that move rapidly when touched, to flowers that look like tiny dancing people, to an Aristolochia that resembles Darth Vader.
All of the plants recommended for cultivation in this book are harmless, and most are easy, fun and fascinating to grow on the windowsill, in the conservatory, garden or the greenhouse.
Age appropriate text and more than 400 captivating images explain each plant’s adaptations and the science behind each species’ unusual traits. This work also reveals how to cultivate many of the world’s most interesting plants, allowing children to grow, at home, stinky star-fish flowers to startle their parents, or chocolate-mint plants, white strawberries and purple potatoes to surprise their friends!
Spectacular Plants and How to Grow Them makes plants and horticulture fun and engaging! This work will appeal to students, schools, naturalists, pet enthusiasts and all those interested in science and conservation.
