There is nothing like growing your own vegetables. The excitement of sowing a seed, seeing it come through the soil, growing it to harvest and then eating it is one of life’s great thrills. You do not even need a garden to grow vegetables as a seedtray, an old plastic milk bottle, a takeaway food box or really any container that can provide a minimum depth of soil for the relevant crop can reap its rewards. In this book Christine Walkden tells you how to grow vegetables simply, even if you only have a window box or a window sill, and for those who have never tried before she highlights what may go wrong and how to avoid common mistakes. In these economically difficult times, growing your own veg is an attractive option for gardening novices as well as those with some experience.
