The Windowsill Gardener (hardback 4 Mar 2021)
This is a lovely little gift book or inspiration to start growing something this Spring, no matter how small and no matter how limited your space.
Grow amazing plants from the comfort of your own home. This book will teach you the basics of growing fruit, vegetables, herbs, and the very best indoor flowers, as well as tips and tricks to reuse your food scraps and reduce your waste as you experiment with seeds. Did you know that you can grow a beautiful houseplant from an avocado seed? Or regrow lettuce in a matter of weeks, just in an inch of water? And you can create a windowsill of delicious herbs simply from cuttings? You don't need a complicated toolkit to start sowing; just spades of enthusiasm and any spare containers you have lying around your home.
And here's the best part: as your windowsills begin to burst with greenery, you will reap the health benefits too - from anti-oxidants to air purifiers, as well as plants which aid good sleep, your plants will transform every aspect of your lifestyle. This gorgeous book celebrates the joy of creating something from scratch and infusing the home-grown mentality into all aspects of your lifestyle, from your mealtimes to your home decor and your wellbeing. So, just pick up a pot and start sowing your own!
