Any gardener will be able to tell you how satisfying it is to be able to dig up and eat vegetables that you have planted and grown yourself. There is a great sense of pride in being able to feed your family with hand-grown crops.
Veg fresh from the garden tastes better, and you always know what has been put on them and where they were grown. Plus, they might even save you money, as vegetables can be expensive to buy in the shops, but are cheap to grow yourself.
Tomato plants are one of the most popular vegetables to grow and it's easier than you think. You don't need a greenhouse: you can start the seedlings off indoors and them plant them in the garden or put them in grow bags once established.
The tomato plants available these days usually have a particularly high yield, especially if you water them well and use feed when they are fruiting.
Asparagus seeds are a great, cheap way of getting asparagus to eat at home. This vegetable is very expensive in the supermarket and also doesn't last very long when cut. Picked straight from the garden, it will have a lot of flavour and be extra tender.
Vegetable plants will grow better in some gardens than others, but it doesn't take much research to discover which will work best for you. There is a huge range available so there will be something to suit every garden and gardener - order now, and don't forget to check out our selection of seed potatoes.
