Carol Klein is one of the most familiar gardening experts working in the media today, most famous for her role as regular presenter of Gardener\'s World. Her natural, down-to-earth approach has made her popular and trusted figure. As well as covering all the wonderful shows from Chelsea and Tatton to Hampton Court, Carol has fronted many series including Grow Your Own Veg and Open Gardens.

Carol originally trained as a fine artist and spent many years teaching art in schools and colleges. She started gardening and running a nursery from her home in Devon, and her hobby eventually became a career. She began exhibiting at RHS shows in 1990 and went on to win gold medals at Chelsea, Hampton Court, Westminster and Malvern.

Carol first appeared on Gardener\'s World in 1989 when Geoff Hamilton did a feature on her garden, Glebe Cottage. Following regular appearances as a guest presenter for both the BBC and Channel 4, she wrote and presented her own six-part series Wild About the Garden in 1998, and two series of Real Gardens. Other television work includes offering gardening expertise on Time Team and Garden Doctors, and appearing as a guest on Water Colour Challenge (all Channel 4).

Her extensive writing work includes not only her books - Grow Your Own Veg was a six-month top 20 bestseller, with over 200,000 copies sold - but also her weekly double page spread for Garden News and contributions to the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, Gardener's World magazine, Gardens Illustrated, English Garden and Horticulture.

Carol is currently working on her new series Life in a Cottage Garden, filmed at her own gardens at Glebe Cottage.
