    Which beginning gardener doesn't recognize this scenario: any bit of green in the shrub or herb bed is eagerly welcomed, but you often wonder: What is sprouting here? This book shows in clear sample photos how you identify young plants based on the form of their leaves. This is how you learn to distinguish between troublesome and beautiful and useful seedlings. The author shows how to prevent weeds, but she mainly focuses your eyes on surprising discoveries in your own garden. Because many immature plants later carry beautiful blossoms, are valuable for soil and animals, or taste delicious as tea, salad or spice. An unusual, inspiring book for fascinating garden adventures with the whole family.
