How To Grow Your Own
A real world user guide for growing amazing vegetables and herbs from seed!
There is something magical about seeing a tiny seedling sprout from a dry seed that you yourself have planted.
To harvest a bumper crop of delicious, healthy food from that young seedling once it has grown to maturity is truly one of life's more rewarding experiences. More
This is the third “Real World User Guide” I have written and it faithfully follows the same focus as the previous two:
A concise and easy to follow real-world user guide, loaded with tips-and-tricks which make a quick and real difference to what it is you are trying to achieve.
Over the last 20 years, I have gathered together many great tips from my family’s vegetable gardening exploits, fellow growers’ advice and also from my own personal experiences of seeing what does and doesn’t work.
I have spent a little longer on tomato growing in this Real World User Guide as I have always had a bit of a thing for tomato growing, and in fact, I would even go so far to say I am a bit of a tomato growing maniac :o) .... Early Cascade, Legend, Golden Nugget, Garden Peach or Champion, I care not which, I love and grow them all!!
I then share some general growing tips I have learnt about the other vegetable plants and herbs that I grow every year, such as peppers, broccoli, carrots and Swiss chard and lastly, I mention a few general good-practice seed storage tips and tricks.
Of course these days many vegetable plants are available to us ready to plant-out, but nothing quite compares to the thrill of being involved with your produce right from the start...
In fact for me, nothing in the wonderful world of gardening is more fulfilling than going all the way!
