Buy Local and Now Want to Grow Your Own

You may already be a happy customer of your local farm shop or pick your own farm. Now, you may want to have a go at growing vegetables and fruit yourself.

Allotments and gardens are ideal for growing fruit and veg, but not possible for everyone. Tomatoes, for example, can be grown on windowsills, while herbs donít need too much space to excel. You can also look into hydroponic plant-growing kits for your little indoor garden.

A good place for research if you live in a town is to go to to find details of local allotment projects and classes on growing your own produce. Also, you could chat to other people who may also be interested in growing their produce. They might have a bit of land or an allotment to share.
