Carol Klein - Grow Your Own Garden (2nd Hand Hardback)
Subtitled : How to propagate all your own plants.
Carol Klein is passionate about propagation. Her own garden, Glebe Cottage in Devon, as seen on Gardeners' World, is almost grown entirely from cuttings and seeds and in this book she's on a mission to share her joy in working with nature to cultivate the plants she loves.
Too often gardeners are intimidated by propagation, assume it's not for them and go for ready-grown plants from the garden centre. But Carol, a gifted communicator with her infectious enthusiasm, boundless horticultural expertise and easy practical explanations, shows just how simple and satisfying it is to grow your own plants, not to mention sustainable and cheap.
She demonstrates, step-by-step, how to divide herbaceous perennials, nurture seedlings or grow new stock from root cuttings, stems or leaves, showing how there is no mystique involved and anybody can do it.
In Grow Your Own Garden Carol offers a refreshing new approach to propagation, and, just as she did with Grow Your Own Veg, she brings her own unique style to an inspirational, accessible and practical gardening guide that will have great appeal to novices and more experienced gardeners alike.

"Brilliant, I recommend this book to any keen gardener. The author’s enthusiasm comes across in every page. The wonder of initiating the creation of your own new plants, for free, is described on every page. Well illustrated, with high quality, stage-by-stage photographs. I am a novice gardener but have gained many new plants following the book and I look forward to planting the seeds I’ve saved in the spring." - Amazon Review.
