In the eighties she scored hits like 'Kids in America' and 'Cambodia'. But singer Kim Wilde (46) is also a talented gardener. The passion developed during her first pregnancy in 1997 when Wilde decided to create a 'healthy environment' for her children. She studied horticulture, got discovered by Channel 4 and presented several gardening programmes. Her book 'Tuinieren met kinderen' ('Gardening with children'), released last year in the Netherlands, is followed now with a sequel: 'Tuinieren' ('The first-time gardener'). In the book she describes how everyone can create their own dream garden. The book contains planting and maintenance advice. 'Tuinieren' was published by Kosmos. ISBN 978 90 215 0823 8. The book costs 19,95 euro.
