Grow your own fruit and veg without spending a penny. Huw Richards wants us all to be growing our own fruit and vegetables, and he wants to show that we don’t need much money (or even our own garden) to do so. Building on the success of Veg in One Bed, Huw’s second book Grow Food for Free shows you how to produce no-cost, low-maintenance fruit and veg. Learn about the space you need and how to prepare it, how to make your own compost, how to get hold of your first set of seeds, and then strategies to multiply the seeds you have. Can’t afford a raised bed? Try repurposing an old wooden pallet. Don’t have money to buy lots of different seeds? Look in your kitchen cupboards for food that you can plant. Don’t have a garden? See if there is anyone in your local community that will let you grow veg in their garden. Whatever you are worried about, there will be a low-cost way of overcoming it. Once you’ve found a good site, Huw recommends his favourite low-maintenance, high-yield crops, covering first annuals, then perennials (the key to growing free food, as with minimal effort they can give you harvests year after year). Key plant maintenance instructions are provided throughout the book, as well as how to fend off common pests and diseases. Discover how you can barter, borrow, repurpose, and propagate your way to a bountiful harvest of fruit and vegetables without burdening your bank balance.
