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.
