Issue 58

£ 5.99

This issue we’re looking at humble grasses. You might think of them as just lawns, but grass plants are vitally important in feeding the world’s people and animals.

Inside this edition you can investigate the strength of grasses, experiment with using different liquids to water them, construct a meadow field guide and even grow grass seeds from your socks! Plus, meet bamboo-munching pandas, bash out some grass art, meet a scientist hoping to create an ice age tundra, find out how a lawnmower works, discover ten awesomely amazing things made from grasses and meet self-taught botanist, Agnes Chase.
