All About 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 the 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 its 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.

About the author (2007)

Best-known as co-presenter of BBC TV's Gardeners' World, Carole Klein is an internationally renowned gardener. Marchester-born Carol moved to Devon in the late 1970s with her 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 Carole opened a stall in the local market, and eventually she opened her own nursery which is now a thriving business. Caroll has designed four commercial show gardens at Chelsea, won five Cheslsea gold medals. Carol has presented several gardening shows since her television debut on Gardeners' World in 1989, including Garden Party, Wild About the Garden and Real Gardens. Carol also writes regularly for Gardeners World magazine, House & Garden and is a frequent contributor to the Daily Telegraph Gardening section.
