Why grow your own?
From helping the environment to saving some pennies, there are so many perks to growing your own veg. It’s also fun, fulfilling and the freshest way to contribute to your five-a-day.
How to create a vegetable garden
The perfect plot
Utilise the space you have. Whether that’s a plot in your garden, a sun-filled windowsill or a fence to encourage climbing plants. It's easy to create your own harvest – all your seedlings need is good soil, a sunny spot and protection from windy weather.
Pots & protection
Start small and keep seedlings in individual pots. Cover them for protection and keep them somewhere warm, like a sunny windowsill or greenhouse. As they grow, move them to bigger pots.
