Gardeners' World presenter and bestselling author of Grow Your Own Veg shows how anybody can enjoy growing their own plants from seeds and cuttings

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.
