Grow It Yourself!

5 August 2019

From prepping your plot to harvest time – we let you in on the secrets of vegetable gardening

“I grow plants for many reasons: to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty, for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.” – David Hobson

In this ongoing series, we will walk with you step by step through the making of a backyard raised and potted herb and vegetable patch. Each step is documented and is designed in the hope that you will be able to replicate, or improve upon, what we have done. There are successes and failures, surprises and unexpected developments, and also solutions to the hiccups we encountered.

The five steps we cover are:

  1. Prepping
  2. Planting
  3. Growing
  4. Harvesting
  5. Summary

Gardens like this are amazing in that they need very little space and don’t cost a lot to get started. They also are great for people who don’t have a lot of practice or confidence in gardening… or a lot of time. The workload is minimal, but the rewards are great, so give it try! GIY!
