This guide aims to help primary school teachers set up and maintain a horticultural garden in which children can grow flowers and vegetables. A garden calendar is provided to help teachers plan how to fit the project into the school year.

The coloured panels show some flowers and vegetables which are easy to grow, to help pupils choose what they want to plant. Other panels will help them name and learn the roles played by some common garden animals and understand how garden waste and water can be recycled.

This is just one of the FSC's range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it splashproof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.
