Michelle turning over new leaf with book on gardens

Michelle Obama has launched a book on gardening, 'American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America'.

The first lady's 271-page book details her gardening hits and misses and, she hopes, will give people inspiration to start growing their own plants.

Mrs Obama's favourability rating in the latest AP-GfK poll was 70pc, compared with 58pc for her husband. She got no advance payment, and plans to donate all her proceeds to charity.
