Reviewed as the book that will get any child in to gardening, YOU CAN grow your own food is available to order now!

Written and designed for children of all ages, especially 7 – 11 year olds.

YOU CAN grow your own food is full of fun tried and tested activities, as well as lots of interactive pages for children to make it their own. Get colouring in, design their own garden, complete the word search, grow their first veggies, track their height, start cooking, record all their growing adventures and ultimately believe in themselves.

If you are an adult and want a really simple guide on how to grow your own food with some added colouring in and play, then this book is perfect for you too.

YOU CAN grow your own food is out in all fabulous book stores and available to order from Amazon, Waterstones, WHSmiths and Blackwell’s for just £7.99!

Personalised signed copies are available directly from myself for £8.99, plus postage. So if you would like one, please email, including what name you would like the hand written message addressed to.

I would love this book to get covered in soil, pens and pencils – full of memories that children have created and can look back on as an adult.


This book is amazing…it will get any child in to gardening” – Cassiobury Infant and Nursery School

I have so many great things to say about this lovely book! You may know that I trained as a teacher and worked in infant schools (a while ago!…) so this is right up my street. Bright, colourful, inspiring and informative, with lots of space for kids to scribble their own ideas and discoveries. Annabelle is passionate about making gardening accessible, whatever age or social group you’re in, believing in the good that it does for our mental and physical health. So, catch ‘em while they’re young and get in early with a preorder! I saw the proofs yesterday and can safely say it’s the sort of book I would’ve treasured as a child 😊” – Julie Skelton Photography

We love this book. My little ones are a bit young but we’ve read it together and they like the bright colours, photos and illustrations. I’ve enjoyed gardening since a child myself and have learnt some things I never knew from this book. It’s great and they will go back to it for years to come I’m sure.” – eaton via Amazon

Brought for my food loving 5 year old. He loves the book, finds it really interesting and is keen to share what he has learnt with others. 7 year old and 10 year old think it’s good too.” – LB via Amazon
