Enjoy food that’s fresh from plot to plate, not flown halfway round the world
The sweetest carrots, the juiciest tomatoes, the most tender green beans – all these and many more delicious vegetable varieties can be yours: sown in your own garden, reared with your own hand, and savoured by all.
Growing your own vegetables provides delicious food fresh from the soil without costing the earth. Packed with natural goodness, newly pulled carrots, freshly picked peas or potatoes dug straight from the ground are a healthy and inexpensive alternative to tasteless supermarket fare.
And it couldn’t be easier. Discover how planning and preparation, basic tools and the most rudimentary gardening ability can transform an allotment, garden, patio, or even an urban balcony into a homegrown haven. Choose your crop from easy-to-grow varieties that require minimum effort but deliver excellent results.
You don’t need green fingers to grow great food.
