It's the most rewarding task you can take on in your garden and it's the gift that keeps on giving! Growing your own fruit and vegetables is as easy as you want it to be. In this article, we take you through the basic steps of growing carrots, cucumbers and green beans.
Carrots are a moderately easy vegetable to grow; involving regaular tending to and considerable effort. They are also one of the most delicious vegetables you eat when they're home grown, and fascinating to show children as you pull them out of the ground!
Bush beans are one of the easier vegetables to grow and germinate quickly, therefore harvesting quickly. Home grown green beans are much larger and jucier than shop bought varieties and are enjoyed by all.
Cucumbers are fairly easy to grow, but flourish in warmer climates. This fruit is ideal to grow in a greenhouse where it will get the most warmth. This is a climbing variety as well, and may require a trellis as it grows in height.
