How to Grow Vegetables

Growing your own vegetables is easy and great fun for all ages. The results are far tastier and more nutritious than you can get from the supermarket – as well as being cheaper! Every season we use our years of experience to put together a comprehensive range of the best varieties offering the widest possible set of options.

Where to start with growing your own vegetables?

Making a start planting a vegetable plot or allotment can be daunting, which is why we’ve put together growing guides for each vegetable we sell to provide you with instant know-how.

Each guide provides the basics – step by step instructions to guide beginners through propagation, planting out and harvesting – as well as giving handy tips and plant facts to help more experienced gardeners get the best out of their plants.

Information on when to plant, when to harvest and different soil types will also help you to plan out your fruit garden, choosing which combination of varieties to go for and whether to start with a packet of seeds or save on time and plant out plugs.

Remember that creating a traditional vegetable garden is not the only option – our guides also give information on suitability for container and patio growing.
