    DescriptionThis is a TV tie-in for a new BBC TV series "Grow Your Own Veg!" by TV presenter and highly regarded gardener Carol Klein, who has collaborated with the Royal Horticultural Society to create a lavishly illustrated, easy-to-follow, practical and inspiring beginner's handbook to everything anyone ever needs to know to grow vegetables, salads, and herbs all year round. "Grow Your Own Veg!" complements and builds upon the information covered in the TV series of the same name and provides all the practical know-how to get growing your own vegetables. Combining Carol Klein's no-nonsense and enthusiastic approach to gardening, much loved by viewers of "Gardeners' World" on BBC TV, with the horticultural best practice from the Royal Horticultural Society, this is a genuinely step-by-step beginner's guide to growing an aspirational but achievable range of food plants. Whatever the size of a garden, this is a book to convert readers to the pleasures of growing and harvesting their own food plants. From preparing a plot, planning what to plant, and how to grow any one of the 40 featured food plants, this is a book to which veg growers can return every year, whatever their level of expertise.
