Survey shows lack of harvesting knowledge

The number of people growing their own fruit and vegetables has nearly doubled in the past year, according Gardener's World magazine.

But, it seems many new gardeners lack knowledge when it comes to harvesting their crops.

An ICM survey for Gardeners' World magazine, marking Harvest Week, found more than half the UK population is unaware of when 18 of the top 22 fruit and vegetables are in season.

Celebrity gardener Carol Klein demonstrates how to grow your own fruit and vegetables.
