It’s April, and there are assignments to finish and exams to study for, but don’t forget to get out there and enjoy the beautiful springtime weather. Whether it’s going for a walk, creating or cultivating a herb, vegetable or flower garden, there are lots of ways to reenergize yourself in the great outdoors.
We’ve created a display of books, photos and seedlings to inspire you. You’ll be amazed how quickly our little plants are growing – we think they might actually be magic beanstalks. All the books are available to borrow – and when you see these titles, I’m sure you’ll want to.
