Grow to Eat

Growing tips for the allotment and the vegetable garden.

Growing to eat can be fun and exciting for young and old so we will also be detailing how you can get your children or grandchildren and even both involved in the growing and harvesting. aside from being fun growing is also good for the body and mind providing exercise, fresh air and most importantly providing quality time with family and friends or even if desired alone.

This section of our website has been written with the allotment gardener in mind. Keep an eye out here for advice on what you should do in your allotment on a seasonal/monthly basis. We will also provide plant profiles and give some essential information on the different fruits and vegetables you should grow in your small holding. We hope our blogs will help you throughout the growing season and best prepare your allotment and fill your pantry.
