RHS Grow Your Own: Veg Journal
By Carol Klein
Grow Your Own Veg Journal is the obvious sequel to Grow Your Own Veg, the BBC television tie-in fronted by Britain's favourite TV gardener, Carol Klein. Features weekly and monthly reminders that will inspire and inform veg growers to succeed with 30 or more popular vegetables, from potatoes to tomatoes, asparagus to artichokes, broccoli to Brussels sprouts. Special focus on recycling in Carol's Green tips that tie in with Carol's most recent TV exposure on BBC Gardeners' World programme. The monthly, weekly and daily approach of a journal reflects the truly seasonal nature of veg-growing that is tied so strongly to the calendar. Includes information on growing in a garden, on an allotment, in a raised bed or even in a container and reflects an increasing interest in origin and taste of vegetables, and the promise of superfoods such as soya beans. Ideal gift purchase or self-purchase at Christmas and because it's a perennial journal, it can be bought at Easter or all-year round.
No month-by-month journal has ever made it so easy for the gardener to get the most from their veg plot. Carol Klein and the RHS experts consider every stage in the process. From buying seed, sowing, planting and feeding, to harvesting and effective storage.
Best-known for her regular TV appearances on BBC's Grow Your Own Veg, Gardeners' World and Open Gardens, Carol Klein is an internationally renowned gardener. Manchester-born, Carol moved to Devon in the late 1970s with her husband and two daughters. She started propagating plants because she couldn't afford to buy the ones she wanted for her own garden. Friends suggested she sell the spares, so Carol opened a stall in the local market, and eventually she opened her own nursery, which is now a thriving business. Carol has designed four commercial show gardens at Chelsea and won five Chelsea gold medals. For over 200 years, the Royal Horticultural Society, Britain's premier gardening charity, has been promoting horticultural excellence by providing inspiration through its shows, gardens and publications. Funded mainly from membership subscriptions, the RHS provides advice and information to its members, whatever their level of skill.
