About Get Started: Growing Vegetables

Take the first step to gardening expertise with Get Started: Growing Vegetables, part of a new series of learning guides from DK where nothing is assumed and everything is explained. Each course follows the same structure: start simple and learn the basics, build on what you've learned, and then show off your new skills!

Get Started: Growing Vegetables
teaches complete beginners the skills needed to complete 53 gardening projects. Start simple with leafy windowboxes and a hanging herb basket, build upon your skills with a potted apple tree, and then show off by building a raised garden bed.

With step-by-step pictures and practice projects to keep you on the right track, Get Started: Growing Vegetables will help you learn your new skill in no time.

More than any other series on the market, DK's Get Started aims to provide the reader with carefully structured learning and a classroom approach to teaching that allows you to build your own course from practical lessons and themed projects.

Each book begins by answering fundamental questions, identifying an essential starter kit of tools and equipment, and explaining how to build a course. The book then divides into subject areas, with key techniques for each area demonstrated through visual glossaries and step-by-steps, followed by graded projects with annotated instructions and an assessment of how to build on achievements.

Let DK be the perfect one-on-one tutor you never had: patient, illuminating, inspiring - always at hand to point you in the right direction so you can achieve your potential.
