30 July 2018

Always wanted to grow your own veg but don't think you have space or the skills, don't worry we've got you sorted!

You don’t need a lot of room to grow veg and no garden equipment needed! Try to plant veg in areas that get a good amount of sun. Plants will need protecting from birds and creepy crawlies. 

 

Salads

Salads can be grown in pots; they will only take three weeks to grow and are best planted over the summer months.  When leaves are ready simply pick from the base or cut with scissors.

 

Potatoes

Plant Late February to March and they will be ready July to September.

Potatoes are very low maintenance veg you can grow them in potato bags, bins or in the ground. Cover up shoots when they appear with fresh compost, keep the plants well-watered. Dig up your sprouts when the foliage dies back. Most garden centres will sell potato bags that you only need to top up with compost and keep watering. They are very easy to tip out and collect the spuds once the plant has died back.

Peas

Plant in March to June, ready in 2-3 months.

Peas need something to climb up as they grow so canes or chicken wire can be used for them to creep up. The more you pick the ripe peas off the stalk the more peas that will grow.

Spring Onions

Plant in March to July and ready in 8 weeks.

Grow in pots or on the ground. If you let the plants flower than they will self-seed for more to grow. It’s a good idea to plant mint alongside spring onions in order to deter onion flies.

 

Tomatoes

Plant in February to April and they will be ready July to October.

Tomatoes are one of the fastest growing fruits. It's best to choose a bush variety so that you can plant them in hanging baskets, pots or window boxes. They only need regular watering and are very low maintenance.

HAPPY GARDENING!
