A gem of a book with details about 68 windowsill plants to grow from kitchen scraps. From the common carrot to the exotic cherimoya, there are dozens of foods that have pits, seeds and roots waiting to be rescued from the compost bin and brought back to life on the windowsill. Turn a neglected gingerroot from the fridge into a vigorous houseplant. Learn about the sphagnum bag trick for seeds like mango which don’t advertise which end is up. Great fun for children or adults.
