WHAT CAN I DO & HOW DO I DO IT?
Plant some vegetables at home in the garden to create your own supply of fresh and nutritious produce – once you’ve tasted home-grown vegetables there will be no looking back! There are a number of simple options for growing vegetables at home to suit different needs, ranging from a large plot in the garden to pots on the balcony.
You can start a vegetable garden any time because different varieties of vegetables are suitable for planting at different times of the year. An important first step is selecting a suitable site for your garden bed. Choose a location that gets plenty of sun – as a general rule vegetables need at last six hours of direct sunlight each day. Your vegetable garden should also be sheltered from strong winds and not too close to trees (the roots of trees will compete with your vegetables for water and nutrients).
There are many good reasons to grow your own food – you get access to cheap, great tasting, fresh ingredients right at your doorstep… and it’s lots of fun! It can save you money – you’ll be surprised at how productive a home vegetable patch can be. There are health benefits if you grow your vegetables organically. By growing organic food you and your family get to eat food that is free from chemical residues. The environmental benefits are important as well – growing your own vegetables reduces the huge quantities of artificial fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides used in largescale farming, also reducing the pollution caused by having to transport food over long distances. Establishing a vegetable garden is very rewarding – and you can share surplus produce with friends and neighbours, which is a great way to build community spirit.
This excellent guide is full of information about planting and maintaining a vegetable garden. With illustrations and details about no-dig gardening techniques, even novice gardeners can start growing vegetables!
