New guides to build on success of grow-your-own

Octopus imprint Mitchell Beazley is building on the 500,000 sales of last year's Grow Your Own Veg television tie-in with three publications for Christmas and early 2009. Grow Your Own Veg, the best-selling gardening book of 2007, will be followed by October's launch of Cook Your Own Veg. The book features BBC Gardeners' World presenter Carol Klein teaching readers how to use vegetables they have grown in the kitchen. It is being released alongside the Grow Your Own Veg Journal, which contains tips on growing and cultivating veg as well as space to record personal experiences of the garden or allotment.

The final instalment, again written by Klein in association with the RHS, is called Grow Your Own Fruit, and is due to come out in hardback in January, priced £16.99.
